my auction lots arrived today and I'm very happy.

The Sennen pieces tend to have  more detail and the glazes have variation in tone






 

the Mythical bird planter is 10 inches tall x 12 inches wide and the two lions are  8' x 8'

ID Confirmation please ERIC LEAPER

Post by vanmann on Wed Mar 05, 2014 3:32 pm

I bought this carafe, goblets and tray set thinking Eric Leaper, would be grateful for any confirmation. None of the pieces are marked although one has a foil label from what I assume to be a gift shop. The telephone no. on the label is pre STD which I believe was fully rolled out by 1970 so presumably this would pre-date that. All suggestions etc much appreciated John

My GF didn't even have a pottery collection before I came along.
Now she has a better collection of these small Bison than me.

She's recently picked up a Green glazed one to add to her collection.
Shown along with her other ones.


She wishes it had more green in the glaze, but you don't see many of them - so this will do for now.

rare Leaper Newlyn figurine

Post by dantheman on Wed Oct 01, 2014 4:16 pm

     

This has to be the most unusual Leaper piece I have seen, completely atypical in colour, method and style but clearly marked with the Leaper Newlyn signature.

Standing at 9 inches tall this piece seems to be a simple slab build or cut out from a rolled piece of clay.

many thanks to Lisa of chinafinda1 for donating these images

Quite extraordinary. Not to everyone's taste though.

very unusual glaze for Leaper, the more I see the more I grin when people say Eric was a one trick pony

My first Leaper piece (or so I believe):






Anyone able to tell me anything about it please?

It's massive at around 17 inches wide and 13 inches tall.

it looks like Bill Fisher designed this horse for Eric, it's very rare and possibly the best Leaper pottery we have seen on the forum Most Excellent

Well spotted Marlon

Cheers Dan :)

It's a very grand piece in person, only trouble is finding room for it, currently it's on top of one of my bigger cabinets, but it could probably do with it's own stable! Big Laughter

I have found a few odd looking Leaper pieces over the years but that one is nothing like any of the Leaper I have experienced.
Having said that the signature looks good
