Tbh, Iíd say £40 is probably the going rate for an early Maltby like that. Mine was the same price

Would agree with that. Collectors like the later Maltby.

Yes N, but why would a tightwad like me pay for something that when i had
no idea what it was? Not 50p on the boot.
This is exactly what this thread is about.

There is another point - The reason you marked your bread or your suit was that you wanted to advertise to someone that yes this really tasty bread was made by Mr Denby and Sons of Dump Road Derbyshire.

You were proud and wanted everyone to know that this was your bread.

Those who did not mark their bread made it somehow lesser - like they were not proud of it.

I disagree, when items get really popular often the best things to buy are the worst items they produced. Take Lucie- say they sold you a box full of leftover saucers and seconds for a few shillings.....

If people cant collect the best then at some point they will start thinking about the Maltby that no one wants and there will be a rush!

Yes, I got sucked into buying Torquay mottoware when there was a rush to buy early Branum pieces, which itself was hot because of the rush to buy Royal Doulton and Martin Brothers. The only thing thatís kept its value has been Martin Brothers.

The early work that Maltby produced at Stoneshill was pretty much standard Leach school type stuff. Competent enough, but not that much different from the vast quantity being produced all over the place. So you have a competent tenmoku brown (minus 1!), Thin Lamp base ( minus 2 and 3) with a John Maltby signature on it (plus 0.5!). Matlby's reputation would probably have to go Lucie and Coper stellar for this to reach a nice price. David Leach's work is also similarly patchy in prices.
Having said all that spiel of course, who the heck can predict markets? In 30 years time it could be worth a fortune! (Or not! Shrugs ).
