There you go. My first thought was Hornsea, but it's not a design I've seen before and I'm quite familiar with that stuff. Doesn't look like Midwinter to me.

Oh - just noticed one of my little Hornsea mushrooms has a dark brown stopper just like one of these has.

They were probably bought in from a supplier who also supplied other factory's, but this may help the idea of it being British.

No marks at all. The Hornsea mushroom cruets were also always unmarked, though. The green does seem very close to the lime green on the Gaiety range. I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but the design is incised.

Having looked up some others by Hornsea, personally I'm at least 75% confidant that they are Hornsea. (Though will probably find out I'm wrong Big Laughter )

Reasons being:

The size and number of the holes are exactly the same as some on ebay (1 large hole for salt, 3 fine holes for pepper, also the way they have been molded sharply), the ebay ones are a different shape by the way.

The clay looks to be the right colour and hardness.

The molding looks right, including the "incised" parts.

The way the bases are molded.

The glaze tones seem to fit too.

It's not Midwinter but Hornsea seems a good shout to me, although I don't regard myself as knowing much about Hornsea.

There are some designs that are attributed to John but there were also other designers
Most designs were a committee decsion to make so the intial design could be from any of the designers
JC was there from 1958 to 1972 in his first stint doing tableware so it could well be but who knows

Someone else might know the designer but they are clased as multicouloured slip ware vases (4 in the series) 1961
Produced for a very short time only and quite hard to find nowadays

John was responsible for several of the most memorable 20th Century ceramic designs, he will be sadly missed

For those interested I have written an obituary for John Clappison in the Guardian, but not sure when it will be published

Its the homestead range 1965 and it is a vinegar bottle The scarcer one is the light blue flames on a dark blue background

They were made by painting hot liquid wax in the shape of the flames onto a once fired pot Once cool it was sprayed with a brown oxide glaze and fired again This left the wax areas, the flames, unglazed once the wax had melted. It was then sprayed with the secondary honey glaze which when glost fired the honey glaze adhered to the unglazed areas but not the primary glaze The interior glaze was done at this time as well

I dont know the designer sorry
The Homestead range was
301 eggcup
302 salt & pepper
303 mustard pot lidded
305 vinegar bottle
306 sugar bowl
307 preserve pot lidded
308 cream jug
309 rectangular butter dish lidded
310 cheese dish and lid

there was no 304 in this range and to confuse the issue more all the numbers have been used in other earlier ranges
