I'm sure this is by Michael Casson, can anyone confirm?  I know the mark is similar to David Constantine White but his mark seems to be more circular.

Thanks. I thought so. Don't know if it's an appropriate question but if i was to put it on ebay what sort of price would be fair? It' quite large around 45cm diameter.

Sorry we not do valuations on here. Your best bet is looking at sold prices on Ebay. What I would say, if you sell it, be Very careful in your packaging. Large diameter chargers are easily broken if not packaged Really well!

I’ve had several large plates and dishes arrive broken when bought off eBay. Always double box, and leave a good inch or two all round the edge of the charger for bubblewrap and polystyrene chips. Don’t use air pockets. When I post, I wrap with bubblewrap and then tape it securely to a large piece of cardboard (cut from the bottom of a fruit box from the supermarket) so I know it’s not going to hit the edge of the box if it’s dropped by the postman. I also add an extra board of cardboard to the top and bottom because I’ve had dented boxes where corners of other parcels have hit in the Sorting Depot

As for value, yes, check completed listings to see what his work sells for, although Adam Partridge auctions run specialist auctions for studio pottery, and Miar Arts, Wooley & Wallace, and others. Ebay buyers expect to get a bargain so you may get more selling through an auction house, despite the hefty selling commission
Chargers are difficult to display and worth less than his jugs imo. And his sgraffito decorated pots are worth more than his plain ones.

The market in Michael Casson is quite choosy, which indicates a small pool of collectors. The Salt glaze wide bellied jugs sell well, as do the tall ones. Equally the modern sgraffito bowls known as the 'swimmers' do well. But as you say Naomi, chargers tend to be less popular. Another place to look at for prices is Maak, a high end online studio pottery auction house. Just Google it.

Great info. Thanks. Might be worth putting it in at a local auction house. I've also had quite a few things arrive broken from ebay. It's amazing what people consider to be adequate packing when sending fragile items.

Mallams in Oxford do specialist design sales which includes a lot of studio pottery. Be wary of putting it into a local auction house that does nut run specialised sales, it may well get lost in the general mish mash. Also check on fees....seller's premium. insurance, storage, unsold lots costs , the costs are often hidden in the small print! Laughter
