I wouldn't have noticed it if it hadn't been for your cockerel. Happy The seller hadn't id-ed it because the backstamp is too faint.

Everything is pointing me to Llangollen Pottery , formerly Powell Pottery and I would date it around the early 1950's. Ed

Thanks big ed Excellent
Have looked at Llangollen/ Powell pottery posts here on the forum and elsewhere online.
You obviously have (had?) an interest in the pottery. There is mention of an 'incised Powell Pottery' mark - would that be abbreviated to PP ( rather than written in full) or would that be the potter. The only images I've managed to find are for Llangollen marks.
Would it have a value? especially as it's relatively early ( or vintage like me - born ' in the early 50s'!!)

Powell pieces are quire scarce , I believe various incised marks were used , they were quite sought after a few years ago , I haven't been keeping track of the pots for a while so I don't know how many collectors are around but yes it is more valuable than the sheeps cradle marked Llangollen pieces , I know Rhys Powell died, but his wife is still working doing mosaics and stuff if you can find their site and email she might help more , she has helped me in the past , yes good vintage the early 1950's same as me too Happy

Just out of interest I Emailed the pottery and received confirmation that it was indeed made by Jean and her husband, Rhys 'Taffy' Powell, as Powell Pottery in 1951
Thanks for the contact info BigEd.

I intend to keep it and use it for its intended purpose although at first I did think SIWGR was an acronym - possibly for a railway   Rolling Eyes

Powell and Llangollen Studio Pottery (Wales) - Page 3 Empty unusual llangollen dish

Post by rosyrutter on April 14th 2013, 9:21 pm

Hello there. I recently bought a Llangollen dish which looks very 1950's in design. It is white underneath and at the rim, changing to a powdery blue interior with loose hand painted decoration in green, grey, brown, black, orange. They may represent fruit or fish, not sure really. This one has an inscribed LLANGOLLEN and a cradle.

Wonder if it is meant to be stylised corn on the cob? Very nice, whatever.

Hi..I have the black version of Jonah and the Whale. I actually send pics off to Cardiff uni some years ago and they didnt know who it was by...now I know..I thought Portmeirion because it is similar to some of the early Portmeirion drizzle and dot type. All it says underneath is Wales and the back stamp. I will dig out or take new photos sometime. I did pay £30 for mine in Narberth Malt House Antique centre. She didnt know anything about it but I just loved it so much that I paid what she wanted as I knew that if I didnt I would always be sorry. I am from N Wales originally from Denbighshire..but I never thought of Llangollen.
