Hello everybody, I've just joined, although I've been reading this forum for a while.
I love Chelsea pottery and have a few pieces myself. I've found it all very interesting including HollyVS's recent post.
I'd like to post a photo on here of one of my dishes, but I'm not sure how to do it.

This is the favourite piece of Chelsea pottery that I own. I'd be grateful if someone could tell me who's the signature is ?

I think itís by Joyce Morgan. The J looks right and her monogram looks a bit like JCM so what looks like a U here is just the connection between the latters. Certainly itís a quality piece; as good as any of her work.

Hi everyone. I've had a look back through the thread and it's very interesting. A lot of the names of decorators on the lists are either before or after my 10 years at Chelsea.
Brian Hubbard was a director.
Hazel Livi may also have been a director as well as a decorator I'm not sure.
The decorators who worked at Chelsea during my time there were :
Joyce Morgan
Hazel Livi
Barbara Ross
Kim Warman
Mary Fenton
Janice ?
and several more who were there for shorter periods of time.
I'm afraid I can't remember their names

Betty Dennison- Hunt mixed glazes, dipped biscuit and made cast ware.
Jim Rose packed and fired the kilns and did maintenance work. There was a blacksmiths forge at the back of the kiln room too.
Frank Spindler threw bowls and made the figures.
Joan ? Made the press molded dishes.

I have a few photos of the Pottery but moved house recently so they are in a box somewhere amongst many others!

The signiture on your bowl LynRich, does look as though it could beJoyce's even though it's not exactly like her usual signiture.
It's worth mentioning that sometimes if the base glaze was a little thick your signiture
had to change a bit to accommodate it.

Thanks for all your information Holly VS, and thanks folks for trying to decipher the signature on my dish.

I'll have a look though all the pieces on here & †see if I can find a similar decorating style. I must say it doesn't look like one of †JM's .

This one is very similar and by Jane Blackburne. Best to ask Wendy Blackburne at Cheddington Studios if the plate is one of hers

Itís a thumbnail which is bigger when clicked on, but your original photo size in terms of kilobytes is quite small to begin with

Unglazed piggy bank - Chelsea Pottery

Post by denbydump on May 4th 2018, 8:12 am

The decoration is rather like David Sharp, or Celtic. The remains of a paper label might give a clue.
Sure I've seen something similar on here before.
