Does anyone have any information on Studio Potter Tony Eaton (Three Kings Studio, Chester). Just picked up this lovely 10.5" tin-glazed dish made in 1979 to commemorate 1900 years of Chester's recorded history. Haven't been able to find anything on the internet about him.

He's not in my 1999 copy of the British Studio Pottery Marks book.

Hi NaomiM, no may be the Three Kings Studio wasn't in existence for very long.

Had a message from Tony Eaton via Pinterest -

Stoneware Castle pot by Tony (Anthony) Eaton, Three Kings studio - label "Cut & carved stoneware candle holder. A small version of much more complicated builds made between 1978 & 1990"
Tony said he also potted at Places y Dduallt Maentwrog, Wales.

Hi. This is my Dad. We moved to North Wales from Kent in 1974, a couple of years later he started to produce pottery in the garage which was sold at craft fairs at weekends. In the late 1970's they bought a derelict building at 90-92 Lower Bridge Street Chester, which was restored partly by the family and also by builders Dutton & Peters. Here they opened a shop, Three Kings Studios, selling crafts from people throughout the North West on a sale or return commission basis. Dad had a studio in the back of the shop and mum ran the shop, with help from a friend and dad. Due to ill health they sold the business and premises around 1983/4 moving to Plas Y Dduallt. Mum passed away in 2000, Dad now lives in Looe in Cornwall and is in his mid 80's. I'd be fascinated to know where you acquired this plate! I have often looked out for items of his work as he sold a vast array in of items from mugs (he disliked making these as he felt they lacked much creativity, but many people wanted a small item to buy) to individually crafted lamps to "Trezibond" towers and clocks.
