Picked up this beaker today which is marked MAUND  & LR on base. My first thought was that it was by Geoffrey Maund but the mark doesn't appear to tie up with his and if so what is significance of LR. Has anybody got any thoughts on this please.
Thanks John

Maund is/was his surname. He worked in Croydon from 1952 when this mark was used and changed his mark in 1961. I'm not sure how long he continued after that.

With several things in the British and Studio threads it could be argued that they could/should be in the other thread.

On this occasion I think this is the correct thread as, although on a fairly small scale, the output was not one-off individual pieces but numerous examples of the same shape and pattern. It was also a limited company, which isn't the case with individual studio potters.

Geoffrey Maund Pottery Ltd. Empty Inreply to Geoffrey Maund beaker? Post by vanmann on June 26th 2010

Post by nbjr1 on November 16th 2015, 12:54 pm

I realise that this post was 5 years ago, however, my father Laurence Rabson was Geoffrey Maund's first glaze artist and worked with him in Purley - which explains the LR signature, this will be an early Maund beaker as he used a stamp on later works.

Hi I have a couple of pieces of Geoffrey Maund Pottery & can't find much information on it . I have found some items on eBay but it just seems to be the kitchen type items I can't find any of the vases . I believe the hand signed items are from the 1950s & the stamped items are later from the 1960s . Any info on them would be great

Geoffrey Maund Pottery Ltd. Empty An update on Geoffrey Maund

Post by Earwig on November 3rd 2019, 8:47 am

studio-pots wrote:Maund is/was his surname. He worked in Croydon from 1952 when this mark was used and changed his mark in 1961. I'm not sure how long he continued after that.

In the 1990s  I came across a lovely couple at a charity fundraiser in Surrey, selling personalised blue and white striped mugs, for immediate purchase or pre-order.  They were based in Purley/Coulsdon. Over the years I ordered mugs for my children and grandchildren. I met them at a few more fairs after that.  My son broke his mug about four years ago and I rang the Geoffrey Maund number that I had kept.  A lady answered and I was passed to her mother, Margaret Maund, who said she had a few with that name on in her garage and she kindly sold me one.  From this experience, I have deduced that the pottery hasn't been running for some time but from looking at this site I have discovered so many other beautiful Geoffrey Maund creations.  I have told my next generation to put their personalised mugs on a high shelf and not to break them!

The mugs we have are stamped on the bottom with a circular design saying, Geoffrey Maund, England and with 'Hand Made' in the middle.
