William Ault & Co, Art pottery, Swadlincote, Derbyshire.

The pottery was established 1887, and continued until 1922, when
it was merged with Ashby Guild and other works, to form Ault &
Tunnicliffe until 1937. It then continued as a pottery under various
other ownerships, until closure in 1975.

Dr. Christopher Dresser.
In 1890 the pottery bought many of the moulds from the closure
of the Linthorpe pottery, which included some Dresser designs.
Dresser himself designed for Ault between 1892 and 1900, though
the pottery probably continued production of his designs after the
contract ended.

Much of Ault pottery is unmarked, and is easily confused with the
wares of nearby Bretby. Certain glazes are characteristic, as are
fine turning marks on the bases.

A 17 inch moulded vase, Rd no for 1892.

2 unmarked pots with designs attributed to Dresser, hand painted over a sprayed background.

A fellow collector has kindly sent me a factory pattern sheet for these wares. It is known as the "Creke" pattern, and while not a
Dresser design, there were certainly some generic Dresser shapes decorated in this way.

Oh just like that, at the first sign! Thank you so much, I did try various keywords but never thought of "urn", indeed, one learns something everyday.

Post by Leach54321 September 10th 2022, 7:34 pm

This is an odd one - the handpainted scene to me looks quite modern but is a bit blurred which is part of its look but when you look at the base it looks old and also the glaze is crazed so I can't work out if this is old or not!  The base is impressed with a name - its hard to read but looks to end with LIFF maybe KALIFF or HALIFF and underneath is ENGLAND - any ideas please?

Linthorpe was usually marked, though often unclearly.

This is almost certainly Ault pottery.

Interesting… thanks. I see that you remark on the plain colour pieces being ‘much later’. To me, they don’t look as fine, more mass produced maybe? My vase seems to have a bit more finesse, (colouration and build) would you put it at around 1900 or later?
