Yeh, I know. Just saying - a bigger vase was produced at Newlyn.
But I agree, it the biggest I've seen which can be attributed to Bill.

Agreed, Jilly that's a really nice Bull. Several of the earlier ones seem to be this much darker 'solid' yellow.

Dan - I remember that jug, but can't remember whether you outbid me, or if there was a reason I didn't bid on it - maybe that was one of those items I just forgot about until it was too late - which seems to happen too often these days Frustrated Always nice to have a signed piece Excellent

I was the only bidder in the end so I got it for a snip,plus the chip turned out to be a small bubble in the pewter glaze so no damage whatsoever!! Jumping For Joy

it looks great displayed with 2 other 'Fisher' jugs

Large Celtic lampbase just bought for a few pounds - in mat black and brown with high gloss deep blue and light blue 'Medallion' pattern - original fittings and label attached - c 1970s by the looks of it - with an H or perhaps an A inscribed to base

Thanks Adam

I will keep you updated

Just to let people know
Bill will be 96 this week. Celtic pottery (Newlyn & Mousehole) - Page 6 435709
Unfortunately he is now very frail with very poor eye sight and has little if any memory about his pottery. This is a real shame to hear, but I suppose it comes to us all sooner or later.

Can't find a sig at the mo and no label. Bought in a shop in Cornwall in the 60's or 70's according to the owner who bought it.
Enjoy.

Dan,you are very generous! Smush and I am very grateful. Thank you so much and thank you also to Bill's friend who has passed on the information. I am so pleased to have the origin confirmed. Mine was bought from the family who directly purchased it originally in Cornwall but they couldn't remember who'd made it. It now has it's own special display place in our house. I am thrilled to have it.
thanks again

Hi and hello to all,
I've only just come across this forum and so glad I have,what a wealth of information, pictures and knowledge.
Also great news about the up and coming website.....its like waiting for Christmas.
I bought my first piece of Celtic back in '95,my first piece of Troika back in'75 in a gift shop in Lands End.........
I thought Celtic was wound up in the late 70's, but have read that Troika went on to a three day week in 1980 when Illsley and Sirota ended thier partnership.The pottery went on untill 1983 with three members of staff and then one,Julian Greenwood-Penny was offered a position with the Celtic Pottery in Newlyn.....
Just another name that may hold vital information on Celtic Pottery history and product lines before its all too late.

Yeh, I'll have to get some photos sorted.............

Thanks Dan, I can see your on the case.....regards

I am aware of Louise Jinks contact details but I think she left Troika in 1981 well before it closed......

Bill and Maggie made lots of these at the Mousehole pottery,the horns were designed to unscrew so they didn't break off when being shipped

Fascinating - it's lovely to see another to add to the two we already know about. And it's quite different to mine. The horn on mine doesn't unscrew, it slots in btw.

That is fantastic new Jumping For Joy It's amazing how were go years with little 'real' knowledge, then all of a sudden a landslide of info starts.

I just want to know where all the other unicorns/horses are hiding - although I can understand why people are holding onto them.
There is also a 4th of a full horse (at least no horn), which is absolutely stunning - I'm guessing Dan has also seen the pic. We'll have to get permission to post it.
