I just spotted a pot on ebay described as 'vintage Alan Wallwork' but it has a stamped AW mark and looks more like the work of Bob Dawe?
I have only seen the scratched W and AW so is it legit?

Definately Dawe, looks like a slight variation on the Red Barn mark to me.

I don't know what all his ? marks are for either , ther's no connection between Dawe & Wallwork as regards this piece or any other , the seller hasn't done his homework and neither has the buyer ( sucker) who has spent way over the odds .

I love the description for the real piece of Wallwork that "awaits a bid" - NO CRACKS OR RESTORATION BUT CHIPS AROUND THE RIM WHICH IS USUAL FOR THIS DISH. Capital letters too.

The self same dish was bought for 36.00 on Ebay on October 8. This listing was a lot clearer in the noting of the chips.
Its Ebay tho,is it not? With studio pottery especially,what is a chip or flaw,and what is part of the making? Its a Caveat Emptor market a lot of the time,no matter what Ebay might claim.

Wallwork / Dawe on Ebay

Post by big ed on December 28th 2013, 3:48 pm

It's always buyer beware imo, not ebays fault though , proper description is down to the seller , they should admit any faults and show pics tactfully , not making a nibble look like the grand canyon .
