Can anyone confirm if this is a Dresser design? I think it's Linthorpe, but can't find the shape... Great glaze though. Thanks

I've contacted the Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough and they've confirmed that it is a Linthorpe Art Pottery vase (shape No.88) and is an early (experimental glaze) Dresser design from around 1880. They have a couple in their collection.

That is a beauty.
I read the heading, looked at the first picture and thought no, that's not Linthorpe.
As they said, rare glaze.
It is beautiful and, I imagine, there would be people itching to take that from you, should you sell it.

You're right, it's a stunning little fella. I might think of selling to a serious collector. Know anyone?

Hahaha, wouldn't mind it myself.
Were it mine and should I be selling it... I would list it on eBay on a fixed priced listing. I would list it two months (or so) before Xmas, as in my experience, that is the best time (leading up to the last week or so before Xmas) to sell at the best price.
I would not list it on an auction style listing, too risky.
Buy it now or best offer at a price you are happy with, and stick to your guns, no rush to sell a premium piece in my opinion, unless you desperately needed cash.
Hope this helps.
And I've not mentioned value or price as I might get into trouble 😗

I think that the problem for you is that the height of collecting this kind of thing was 25 years ago or more. There will be a few serious collectors still around but they will be looking for the rarest items.

Added to that the number of new collectors in the last 10 years is going to be minimal and so don't build your hope too high.

As an example, I came across a piece for £1 in 2014 and know that 20 years before that it would have been snapped up for £200 to £250, as I would have had the option of running it to several specialist dealers. I sold it on eBay for around £60 and was very happy.
