John & Judy Gibson. Courtyard Pottery (Derbyshire)

Just wondering if anyone recognises this great big lidded vase and matching charger, or their mark?





In spite of their rather florid continental appearance, they are hand-thrown stoneware, very modern, and I feel that they are British - but I haven't a clue who might have made them. Help!

Yes I'm sure you're right. Not potters that I've come across before. A great help! Many thanks.

This looks quite modern. I got it in Clitheroe, Lancs.

Any ideas? Thanks for looking.

2 jugs, same mark - John Gibson - Courtyard Pottery

Post by denbydump on July 10th 2014, 1:17 pm

Can't find this one anywhere. 2 completely different jugs, large pitcher seems to be tin-glazed
terracotta, and the smaller one seems to be salt-glazed porcelain. The round marks are Identical,
though the larger pitcher one is almost glazed over.

FS mark for Frank Smith, maybe? I know one of his FS monograms has the S the opposite way round.

Hi Naomi, not quite, as these are in a circle.
Hoping someone would get the clear CP underneath,
something pottery, maybe?

John Gibson - Courtyard Pottery for the porcelain jug I believe.

Decoration, clay and marks looks correct, but I not familiar with any earthenware he produced.

Thanks a lot potty. Neither mark exactly corresponds to the book, but I guess there
were other variations used over the years. No wonder I drew a blank.
Found this vase with a similarish mark, and the separated CP, so it must be that.
