It was a £5....but my mate who had a stall at the fair told the stall holder it was worth more..so she charged £15..which i think is a bargain

The date's correct, Brin.

As far as I am concerned, he did his best stuff at the Rye and Cinque Port potteries before he branched out on his own in 1964.

Came across this piece, which also has a black ink stamp rather than a hand written mark. That was a commission for Bayer, so it's possible this was also a commission.

For further information, such as a date for the gorilla, it's worth contacting the pottery which is still in operation

Could it be one of the Rye Potteries?

The shape looks similar to one of the miniature vases on the front of Harry Lyon's New Century exhibition "Rye Pottery in the Fifties" catalogue. The exhibition was held during April 1996. I know many of them weren't marked because the seal wouldn't fit on the base.

So I agree with DD - Rye Pottery late 1940s and likely to have been thrown by Edwin Twort.

Twort had worked at the Belle Vue Pottery that had been on the site of the Rye Pottery and had closed in 1939. He had a bit of experience having started working at Belle Vue when he was 12 and been there 63 years.

It is impossible to be 100% certain of course, as I wasn't around back then.

The advantage back in 1996 was that Wally Cole was still alive and was able to attribute unmarked items. I remember going to the PV and later meeting him in Rye and, although quite frail by then, he was still very good at providing information and remembering the past.

A large salt pig. I've seen coffee sets in the brown version of this design. Am I right in thinking it's 1960s? Any other info would be good, if possible.



Thanks in advance

It's later than that as this type of mark wasn't used until the 1970s according to Carol Cashmore in her book The Potteries of Rye. It looks similar to the mark she shows for 1974-1980, although not quite the same. However, that date fits with the time when salt pigs were at the height of their popularity.

N is right, it only goes back 3 months but the sold listing is vey helpful - order highest to low. Compare against the current listed items. To get a good understanding you may have to watch it over a period of time.

Miniature Rye x4. Strangely the one on the left has calcium carbonate deposits all round the top as if it had been left upside down in water for years. All happily dissolved away. No damage. Centre two marked inscribed 'Rye' by hand.

So cute (not cheap :[ )
