Burslem Ellgreave Pottery Co. White Jug Date?

Post by stardust* on September 22nd 2016, 7:35 pm

I need a bit of help please placing this in 'history' of Burslem, it's so convoluted. I read Ellgreave opened in 1921 until 1881? I can't find any other 'white' ware on my searching to place this jug anywhere in that time scale. I'm aware it's probably more 20's-30's as I found the same shape but with a pattern called Lottie Rhead Ware, I presume after Charlotte Rhead who took over artist designs in 1923 but does anyone know anything about this jug??..an old style she spruced up with more desirable decoration??? oh I don't really know what I'm going on about now!

There is an F stamped faintly in the base if anyone knows of the makers marks

Goddens is a little vague on Ellgreave, this mark is not shown, but I would
suspect late 40s, (being undecorated), or early 50s. The F will be the throwers park.

Certain I Id'd a jug, for maybe for Naomi, which was Ellgreave Lottie Rhead, but
again the thread has disappeared.

The B of the mark is likely to be a "group letter" that was used from 1942 until 1947 due to war time controls of production of wares in different categories. A, B and C were initially incorporated into factory marks but from 1945 BY, CY and CZ were also used.
