But these were surely mass production pieces of fairly low value? Incising like that would take much more time than a stamp. So it does not really make any economic sense.

I would assume they were in the first trial run of the design. After which they probably made a smaller stamp.

Help identifying maker of three handled vase, Bretby

Post by Beckberube on September 12th 2018, 9:57 pm




I just picked up this nice vase at an estate sale. Can anyone help me with identifying the maker. It is signed but the marking is faint. It looks like 7-8 characters long and I'm guessing it ends in ARD but I'm not positive. It also has the numbers 1670 and 16. Thanks for any help!

Possibly says ENGLAND, Maybe an obscured rising sun above.
Could be Bretby pottery, they did this metallic finish.

Bretby was my first thought too. Iíve seen a few of their pieces with this glaze and made to look like dented cast iron vessels

Yes it's in the Bretby book. Introduced in 1905, the range is called "Copperette",
These oddly shaped pieces were known as "quaints". The shape No 1670 fits that date also.

Check sold items on eBay for an idea of how much collectors are willing to pay for such items.

A large "Peasant ware" pitcher c1934.
This is the "shiny" version of this design. There is a "matt" example on the previous page.
