Hi

Nice red clay, some style and love the interior cup colour.

A selection of marks from cups and saucers, looks to be an angular RH monogram.

The clay, sgraffito, and glaze colours look the same as Fishley Holland.

I've come across it before but not IDed it yet. Its an RH mark but I can't find it in the Marks book, other than an early Richard Healy mark, but it's not his current style.

What I do know about this is that it was bought from a small gallery in Plymouth in the late 1950s when the previous owner originally became interested in studio pottery (he then bought nothing for over 20 years). From the same gallery he bought David Leach individual earthenware pieces too.

I thought you would know, Naomi, and it also explains why it was originally sold in Plymouth.

Over recent months I seem to have got more interested in studio ceramics with a mid-century look (mainly European) and this does appeal to me.

I grew up in Plymouth. There were zero galleries there in the 1950's. The centre was literally a bomb site.

I know that the date is correct as the person who bought it was there on his first lecturing job and the other piece that I recognised that he bought at the time was a very large earthenware vase by David Leach, which has developed a nasty long hairline crack over the years.

Yes those are Rowland’s. He is my father-in Law, sadly no longer with us . He was a contemporary of Leach and also a painter, a contemporary of Lowry ( exhibited together in his early years in the North) . He was a very modest man in response to his art and I’m constantly surprised that he didn’t become more well-known. I am lucky enough to have inherited some of his books and tools/ studio equipment, some I use everyday . It’s lovely to see his work pop up here from time to time .
