Purchased at auction in Warrington. I know it’s leach pottery just wondering if anyone can give an approximate date or attribute a maker. It looks like an early piece to me but I’m a complete novice. I will have better pictures when I collect it. Any thoughts appreciated.Leach pottery, St Ives - can anyone help identify maker and possible date Cf5f9810

Is that base earthenware? It also looks like the sort of te standard slipware design they did in the mid in the 1930's when Harry Davis (he of the late Crowan pottery) was working there. It might possibly be earlier, but the clay does not look quite right for the 1920's. Unfortunately, although these pieces are quite old, it is only the pieces that can be identified with a specific potter that are eagerly collected.

You could look at our Leach pottery thread for more information. It is all a bit jumbled, but there is a lot of information there!

I concur with philpot's thoughts and it looks to be from the 1930s.

I am assuming that it's quite small and a beaker?

It would have been part of what we call the Standard Ware range at the time. The standard ware was basically the bread and butter range of the Leach pottery which bought in the money. There were a specific number of shapes which were continuously produced by a team of potters. They could produce quite a few in one day.
