Thanks Dan!
I've been having a mooch around and I'm curious. I appreciate that different pieces could have been made by Maggi or Bill, but can I try and clarify something? Was the Medallion range started after Bill left do we know?
Also I have some other thoughts
- re the Unicorn - the similarity to other decorated Folk horse sculptures and horse plates/pieces I can see, is, the unicorn/horse, the horse folk sculptures and the decorated horse pieces are all very 'pretty' with beautiful eyes. The similarity I can see between the Unicorn and the folk horse sculptures is that the head is drawn down towards the chest and is joined at that point on both. I see those as a link.
-- I also idly wondered whether Bill made these Unicorns after he and Maggi separated.
- Fired.. acknowledge that the Medallion range came about after Bill and Maggi split but then have a Medallion horse attributed to Bill Fisher. Is this because they were mould made and the design is Bill's?

I have read several times that the medallion range was introduced after Bill left and am 99% sure that this was the case,I always assumed it was a Gwavas pottery design which was adopted by Celtic pottery whe the two potteries combined

?? Will have to do a search to see what you mean.

Dan - that is what I understand. Medalion was brought 'to the party' by Eve when he joined maggie.

You frequently see Newlyn pieces credited to Bill Fisher. This seems to be just to attract attention to the piece.

Good to hear a little from Ian. Somebody really does need to interview those involved and write a book - before it is too late. Last I read Bill was still alive and living in a carehome and maggie is doing something totally different (can't remember what at moment). I'm sure there would be a demand for such a book - I'd deffinately buy one.

Sorry to spoil the fun guy's - but this handle isn't on upside down. I have a number of these mousehole mugs & jugs and they all have handles this way up. But it does look as though someone may have been a little heavy handed, as they tend to be rather flatter on the top and not such a slope. If you look at mine below, they all have the large top attachment with the smaller bottom attachment.
Celtic pottery (Newlyn & Mousehole) - Page 5 003a10

On a different matter, is that 'coffin' vase actually Celtic ? I've never seen a Celtic one before and it doesn't 'look' that much like Celtic to me - although it may seem more so on handling and actually seeing the glaze?

oops - it's not a coffin is it, it's square. This looks a similar size to those 3 which have been on ebay at various times - but obviously slightly different at the top.

Lidded Jar

Sea Horse - Look closely and you will see it's hasn't had final glaze/firing. It is course not glaze smooth and the colours have not been 'brought out' by the firing. I'm not sure why, but another 'un-glazed' to follow.

'un-glazed/fired' fish

Has anyone else got any of these 'un-glazed' ones ??

And finally (for now), a large triangle dish, which has 3 'stud' feet on the base.

Perhaps from the mousehole site - but there is the 15 in vase (also made as a lamp- I have one) which was done at Newlyn.
