Nice bit of slipware, but not in one of the more common traditional forms one sees so difficult to say how old or whether it's 20thC studio pottery. As Ed says, need to see the base.

Well that was unexpected Happy I thought I'd see an unglazed terracotta. This is looking more like 20thC studio pottery.

So this is a white clay? With brown slip trailed pattern and a caramel glaze. I'm thinking it's one of the Cornish studios. If I'd just seen the base Id have thought Tremaen.

Certainly nothing in the photographs suggests that it is older than the 1950s.

The slip pattern is ringing some bells, but might be one of those things I stumble across in a few months time. If I do, I'll let you know.

Michael O'Brien was the one I was trying to remember. Irish slipware potter, mid-20th Century. Highly regarded but his work is fairly rare. I don't know what his bases looked like.

Spotted a combed slipware dish with a similar white base - Google: Harwood, Stockton, Combed Slipware Dish, c.1860's

The one I found using that search had a pinky brown back colour and an impressed mark and wasn't like this dish at all i. e. it is factory made unlike this dish.
