They are usually together and would be from the first few years of production i.e. 1879 -1882.

Henry Tooth left the company in 1882 and Dresser's services as a designer were also curtailed that year, although the shapes designed by him continued to be used.

The jug that I bought at the Boot Fair the other week is a Dresser design (I have seen examples on the internet stamped as your plate) but clearly sometime from 1882 until the factory closed seven years later.

I've moved the last few posts to ID My Pottery as there was a question mark over its attribution

Lots of items get attributed to Linthorpe because when the factory closed the molds got sold to various other companies to continue production. Most famously Ault who marked with Christopher Dressers name I assume by arrangement. Most did not mark and kept making until at least the 1920's.  

With Dresser Linthorpe attributes the rule of thumb is that if it has a number under a 1000 it has a high chance of being a Dresser design. Over a 1000 he went part time / cut his links and the chances are slim.

Can anyone confirm if this is a Dresser design? I think it's Linthorpe, but can't find the shape... Great glaze though. Thanks

I've contacted the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough and they've confirmed that it is a Linthorpe Art Pottery vase (shape No.88) and is an early (experimental glaze) Dresser design from around 1880. They have a couple in their collection.

That is a beauty.
I read the heading, looked at the first picture and thought no, that's not Linthorpe.
As they said, rare glaze.
It is beautiful and, I imagine, there would be people itching to take that from you, should you sell it.

You're right, it's a stunning little fella. I might think of selling to a serious collector. Know anyone?

Hahaha, wouldn't mind it myself.
Were it mine and should I be selling it... I would list it on eBay on a fixed priced listing. I would list it two months (or so) before Xmas, as in my experience, that is the best time (leading up to the last week or so before Xmas) to sell at the best price.
I would not list it on an auction style listing, too risky.
Buy it now or best offer at a price you are happy with, and stick to your guns, no rush to sell a premium piece in my opinion, unless you desperately needed cash.
Hope this helps.
And I've not mentioned value or price as I might get into trouble 😗

I think that the problem for you is that the height of collecting this kind of thing was 25 years ago or more. There will be a few serious collectors still around but they will be looking for the rarest items.

Added to that the number of new collectors in the last 10 years is going to be minimal and so don't build your hope too high.

As an example, I came across a piece for £1 in 2014 and know that 20 years before that it would have been snapped up for £200 to £250, as I would have had the option of running it to several specialist dealers. I sold it on eBay for around £60 and was very happy.
