Hallo all.
This large goblet (6" tall by 4" diameter) gives me an aesthetic pleasure...the dimensions feel so balanced and the green/brown colour is delightful. However, it seems large for a goblet, so it may have been made for another use. Regardless, I am unable to find any mark; so does anybody recognise this style of pottery?
Thank you
Jack

It has similarities to Chris Aston, Elkesley.

It looks very typical of 1970s studio pottery produced in Britain when it was trendy. Produced by numerous potters back then.

Apologies for the tardy response Grumpy Granddad and studio-pots, I've been hiding away on the Scottish coast. Thank you both for your inputs into my query regarding this goblet.
Jack.

Maybe Grayshott, but as SP says it’s typical of a lot of studio pottery made in the 1970s. And potters seems to have an aversion to marking goblets and cheese domes Shrugs

These goblets were often made in sets of 6, with a carafe to match, hence you see a fair amount of them around, as a lot were made. But its the very qualities you mention-balanced in the hand, attractive glazing and colours- that illustrate what studio pottery is all about. You have a hand made item, from an expert individual, that is of very high quality. Something you rarely get nowadays.
As Naomi says, these were a very 70's thing. Very fashionable as the back to nature movement came very popular.
