I have seen a few with that blue base,they were all made at 'The studio Mousehole' and were the work of Maggie Fisher so I'm guessing they were post Bill Fisher and pre Celtic Pottery

I'm still trying to work out the time frame but late 60's would be my guess

Yep, a nice dish.
Like Dan, most of these coloured bases I've seen were Mousehole, but I have now seen at least one with a Newlyn label. Although they do carry both Bill, as well as Maggi's label. But in this case I do suspect this is one of Maggi's.
However, the glaze does (from what I can see) look to be more like a later glaze than the early one (although I may not think so on handling?).
So I suspect this is either late Mousehole or very early Newlyn - which yeh, would put it as late 60's.

It would be interesting to know the significance of the separate labels (Bill / Maggi) rather than what is assumed to be the earlier Fishers label. Hopeful something Maggi is working on now might shed some light on this matter.

We now know they were potting and painting in Mousehole in the late 50's (although Celtic does seem to have appeared around mid - late 60's?). But they were also potting and painting even earlier whilst still in London, before they moved to Mousehole. Sorry I have no other info on this.

Just picked up this interesting vase.
I'm not buying many vases these days, but this had a 'look' about it, which made me think it could be early and interesting. I had no idea what size it was.
I was very happy when it arrived. I'm fairly sure it is Mousehole production, but what I couldn't see before it arrived, is that it is hand thrown  Most Excellent  which is very noticeable on the outside as well as the inside.
Size is 7.5 inches tall x 4.5 inches at the widest mid point, so larger than I had expected.

A great addition to my collection.

I don't usually collect Celtic but this was cheap and available (like some of my old girlfriends!) so I bought it. What do the serious Celtic collectors think?

yes I did wonder if it might be a lion but to be honest it doesn't look like any lion I have seen and I'm yet to come across a dragon.
I have compared the actual pot with several others in my collection and I'm confident that it was made by Margaret Fisher

VERY NICE Lion mug Dan.
Much better execution of the design than most.
I'm incline to say that's an early Newlyn mug or very late if Mousehole.
Although that 'design' either side of handle is more like what I expect from Mousehole.
Could you show a pic of the base and the handle.

I have only seen the oriental style design on Mousehole pots decorated by Maggie.
I'll post more pics tomorrow

Thanks Dan.
That is a very interesting handle, I've never seen one like that.
It seems to be a mix of both the typical Mousehole one in attachment, but like the Newlyn ones in shape.
So I guess this must be around the transition.
But I can now see the glaze does look to be painted on.
So yeh, I'd say this is late Mousehole.

The Lion design isn't particularly uncommon, but good examples are. Certainly during Newlyn times it tended to look more like a griffin/dragon, than the lion it started out as. It is certainly a design from the very early days, before Celtic Pottery - I've got one with a 'The Studio .....' label.
I'll add a few of mine later

That's one you did beat me to then - I never even saw it!
Was wondering where you found that.
I would have had to think seriously about it, but would probably have made an offer as well.

But I've realised I have seen that handle once before (but only once), I have a very yellow hand made mug with the bird design, with that handle and mine seems to be Mousehole.

This came from ebay last week and cost a folding red one. Sadly missing it's label. Is it Maggie also? To me it looks similar to one of Dan's blue dishes on this thread? But the back is relatively plain without much work. It's very light and thinly thrown - not chunky. Also very uneven, not symmetrical. Heaps of texture and colour and lost of contrasting surfaces, shiny/matt smooth/scraffito etc.

it would probably have said Celtic Pottery and possibly Maggie Fisher then Mousehole or Newlyn,depending on when it was made

Tile - exactly as Celtic Fan's (yellow 1979) except it's got a date mark for 1973 on the back. A friend mentioned he also had one dated 1972.

Am I right in thinking that this 25 cms tall jug is from Celtic Newlyn and if so what sort of date would it be? Thanks for any suggestions, John
