Monster 19 stoneware jug, AP (or AD) mark, African style decoration

Post by benwilliams on February 19th 2019, 4:49 pm

Tried to ID this a few times and surprisingly couldnt. Well thrown, heavy 19 stoneware jug, well decorated. I did wonder if it might be foreign. Ill probably find now that its a local Devon piece and I know nothing. I know Ive put a lot of pots on recently. Im not working right now and Im wading through boxes. I just want to say to all of you whove messaged with facts and opinions - I really appreciate it. Its great for improving my knowledge.

The decoration does look like Abuja. Yet none of the recognised Abuja potters fit that signature.It looks slightly odd actually. The top and the bottom look as though they were made separately, and then shoved on to each other.

I think youre right, it may well have been thrown as two pieces and joined. Its an unusual pot and Im sure its been sold in a gallery with the ticket on the base. But I guess it could be foreign.

Ive come across it a few times before but not managed to ID it. Its a bit like Andrew Van Der Putten s mark from New Zealand, or theres Dorothy (Dotty) Pennicott

The mark on the stoneware dish on the first link looks like the one. Hopefully well find out one day. You must be so organised to be able to find information and not lose it!

I rely on Pinterest as my filing system.

Ive edited the previous post because I forgot to include Andrew Van Der Puttens mark. The one you saw is another example like yours
