I'd be grateful for any thoughts on this large stoneware vessel. Very attractive form and glaze but unfortunately no mark! 32cm highLarge unmarked stoneware vase Dscf0412

Would Svend Bayer be a possibility? Does he produce many unmarked pieces?

There are several potters who dont, or don’t always, mark their work. Bayer, Batterham, Jason Braham.... amongst others. All you can do is compare this pot with similar work on google images, especially the way they fix the handles. This one has a distinctive thumb print fixing method

Those shoulder handles are unusual nowadays, perhaps an older piece? 60's 70's? It is a very well made piece. However finding the maker of an unmarked piece is a difficult and frustrating job. Where did you buy it? Often big pieces do not travel very far from home?

Thanks all for your comments and thoughts. @philpot we live in N Norfolk but do have a lot of retirees in the area so a lot of things migrate into the area when their owners retire here, although saying that the little Stalham pottery piece I listed here was only 15 miles or so from its maker. Thank you all again... I love this forum!

East Anglia is very rural and has a substantial tourist industry, both factors that are attractive to potters. There is an East Anglian pottery group, it might be worth giving them a query. This a link to the individual members A-Z with the sort of pottery they do.
