A rare Leaper vase that I picked up at a car boot for £2.00, sadly it is chipped and cracked but still displays well

That is an unusual piece Naomi, nice thing.


I picked this bowl up yesterday and was surprised to find his signature mark underneath.

The one on the shelf is one of a few that we have and are more familiar with.

He is a potter I want to find a little more about, when I get chance.
I was told that his wild parties could be heard from miles away, though I do not know how much truth there is to that statement, but from little I have heard he sounded like a great character.

Yes, it is a bit chocolatey from a distance, rather scrummy.
It seems, from my limited experience of his work, quite an understated piece.

That is an absolute beauty, surprised you parted with it.

Been having a trawl through Leaper listings on ebay and found a set of 6 Newlyn plates
I would say that I am amazed they haven't been snapped up, though pottery prices really do seem to be going lower & lower by the day. Still an absolute bargain though

I think they are the wrong colour. Collectors prefer Leaper’s bright glaze colours rather than his browns and oranges. And his flatware isn’t as collectible as his animals

Not as collectible, but at that sort of money they are a huge bargain. I remember paying around the £20 mark for single flatware pieces some years ago.

Ooh you jammy dodger.
It makes perfect sense now. To be honest, I would have done a straight swop on those, with or without the cash, the second one is even better than the first for me. Were I to pick that up I would never put it down, looks very tactile. Do you know who it is by?
