2006 at Mallams was his final retirement auction. Just as well you did not make it. All the auction records for Alan Caiger Smith was made at that auction.

A jam pot unfortunately with no lid.
Should I have bought it?

You could always call it a brush pot!

True. Good idea! 😆
It’s in a dark corner of the local “vintage emporium” misrepresented as “jersey?” so most likely it’s still there.
I’ll think about it...

There is still a lot of Aldermaston pottery around. A team of up to 8 potters over more than 30 years produced a lot of pottery. There are 48 pieces on Ebay at the moment. A pot without a lid is probably a buy you will regret.....we have all done it!

This is a gem. A Flog It in Fill piece with Alan Caiger Smith in full flow in the pottery. The glimpse of the reference collection upstairs is fascinating.

There must be some hoarders of ACS out there with fantastic collections as these lovely pieces come up in good numbers.

There were some lovely pieces in Alan Caiger Smith's retirement sale in 2007. I went hoping for some bargains. Prices went through the roof sadly. Got nothing apart from the catalogue!  That first Cross for instance, went for £1300.

In the earlier years Aldermaston and indeed Alan Caiger Smith himself would try many different things. They were after all, a working pottery that needed to make money.
             This week there was an auction of such early Aldermaston pottery at Hannam's in Hampshire. The following images mostly had Alan Caiger Smith's mark on. But all were definitely marked with some Aldermaston mark. The Pig and cow, and the bright blue glaze on a couple of pieces are especially unusual.

Unusual piece by Alan Caiger-Smith, a commission for Shalford Mustard - Caiger-Smith lived in Shalford in Sussex - date code for 1981. I don’t know what the J stamp is for

Aldermaston Pottery - Page 10 Empty Who made this?

Post by Froxfield January 1st 2022, 10:38 am

Here are two pictures of an eighteen inch platter that we received as a wedding gift back in 1971.  It was bought from Aldermaston pottery by a family friend who lived locally.  According to this friend the potter was reluctant to sell it as ut had been an experimental piece and, to be frank. it isn't quite flat!!  I haven't seen anything else quite like it.  Can anyone identify the potter's mark?Aldermaston Pottery - Page 10 Platte10

That is a lovely piece, and Very unusual for Aldermaston. The AC is for Edgar Campden who started in the early years of Aldermaston pottery in 1961, and worked there until the late 80's. I wonder if this was a personal experiment? Hence the reluctance to sell it.

Thank you Philpot for the information. I think it must have been a personal experiment. Our family friend was something of a character around sulhamstead and VERY determined when she set her mind on something. It seems a miracle to me that we have managed to keep this piece undamaged through 50 years and three moves of house. It has occasionally even been used to serve food. Will it survive the grandchildren?
