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.

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 :[ )

I will post one of my favorite jokes here - you can delete if it's out of place.

Wogan (BBC1 from 1982 until 1992) had Rick Wakeman on as a guest and he slipped into the cover station whilst telling a story that he was in the curry house and blah blah ordered a Chicken Tarka and ...blah blah ....Wogan stops him and says... 'whats a chicken Tarka?'..... 'It's like a Chhicken Tika but 'Otter' comes back Wakeman.

So no one under 45 will get that joke.

Hi
May be because I live in Sussex I come across a fair amount of Rye etc or just that so much was produced over the years
This vase appears to me to have quite an old mark and I understand the J is Jim Elliott's . What I have great difficulty with is working out the chronology of all the Rye potteries and the potters that worked in them/ owned them , and when !
So I'm hoping someone can tell me the approximate age of the vase

And this is Reggie.   17 inches long

Undoubtedly Rye Pottery, presumably designed by David Sharp - I've been told it was bought in the 60s.
BUT I've been unable to find one in blue only beige and blue/ white AND there is no mark as far I can see

Any thoughts?

The RYE ENGLAND printed marks were used from around 1953 until 1970 with or without the additions of MADE IN and POTTERY. I suspect it was just what came to hand.

James (Jimmy) Elliott joined the pottery as a trainee thrower straight from school in 1952 and left to do his National Service in 1956. He didn't return to the pottery or potting after that but became an engineer.

The rhino colours do look "David Sharp" and, if so, would have been made at the David Sharp Pottery in Rye.

Agreed, David Sharp design. I've seen a few of his animals in this colour. I think one had been dated 1957
