Aldermaston Pottery - Page 12 Empty Cup and saucer - Aldermaston?

Post by HelenC October 24th 2022, 8:07 pm

Ploughing through my latest ‘that looks interesting’ crateload of random studio pottery, I’ve come across the huge cup (maybe handled bowl?) and saucer below. It doesn’t look quite right for Aldermaston and I can’t match the mark, the colours are a bit odd but it’s a nice pair! Is this Aldermaston, and if not any thoughts? Thanks

Aldermaston invariably used a reddish earthenware clay. That edge looks a bit like stoneware. It does look like it clearly has an Aldermaston influence. The Z part of the mark is unusual though, although The A might well put it as Aldermaston. There were a lot of people who worked at Aldermaston for varying lengths of time and not all of them are documented.

Hi, the clay is a red earthenware, albeit quite a pale one - the flash has bleached it out a bit. I was wondering if it was an undocumented Aldermaston mark, I certainly can’t find it in the ‘official’ list

Look through the Aldermaston thread - there are multiple pieces but no one seems to be sure who AZ is. I think it is Aldermaston. They seem to have done a lot of plates. I have a few

Yes, Aldermaston Pottery. AR monogram, possibly for Simon Rich

Thanks, Naomi, I did think about Simon Rich but all the examples I could find showed his monogram as having the A and R similar heights. That’s the problem with letting potters paint their monograms. Forget national identity cards, I want national pottery identity stamps to be made mandatory!

Jaki Rothery is another possibility. I’ve seen this AR mark before but it wasn’t solved

Another possibility. Alan Caiger Smith also designed a range of pottery for Honiton Pottery. This might explain the change of clay and the not quite traditional Aldermaston design in this cup and saucer.

The same signature on a lustre ware piece, so definitely Aldermaston

The list we have on this thread back on page 3 looks to be taken from the catalogue of the Aldermaston exhibition at Stoke Museum in 1985. So, it's not totally complete as the Pottery itself closed in 1993.

Two very interesting illustrations of early lustre glazing at Aldermaston. One has Geoffrey Eastop's definite mark, and the other looks as though it has as well, although it might be Alan Caiger Smith's. The lustre glazing is by no means perfect, but it is a good way to getting there. Now Geoffrey Eastop left Aldermaston pottery in 1962, so that dates these pieces to some of the earliest lustre produced at Aldermaston. The first exhibition they had of lustre work was at Henry Rothschild Primavera London shop in 1963. So these may have come from that exhibition.

The catalogue of the 1993 exhibition lists over 60 potters who worked at Aldermaston. A number of them did not have marks tho.
