Little beaker. Looks like a commission for someone's 50th anniversary of some kind.

Queen's Golden Jubilee? It seems to be some kind of crazed naive Lion and Unicorn.

Aldermaston commemorative beaker

Post by NaomiM on Mon Apr 27, 2015 8:23 pm

Ah that would make sense. The unicorn looks more like a seal with a spike through its head :)

It looks like Aldermaston
The mark would be for Jane O'Connor (Nee Follet)

Hi denbydump, thank you for that and see links on here to potters who were there at the time. Appears she was there 1978-80. Brilliant help as usual! X

Large Aldermaston bowl

Post by ian Marlow on Sun May 24, 2015 11:28 am

I have this large Aldermaston bowl with a stylised J G signature. The only potter I can see on the list with those initials is a Janet Green, but can find no information. I have contacted a Janet Green who might have fitted the bill but is now a NZ potter and it's not her. Does anyone know if this is the right name or have any thoughts on the signature .




Many thanks
Ian

Ian - Welcome. Small chance it's by someone who left the pottery and changed their mark. Certainly looks Aldermaston related.

Definitely looks like an Aldermaston trained potter, but not a mark I've come across, sorry

You could try asking some other Aldermaston potters like Ursula to see if they remember them

Mohamed Hamid

Post by NaomiM on Fri Jun 19, 2015 6:30 pm

Mohamed Hamid jug, with his HA monogram. Trained at Aldermaston then joined Jonathan Chiswell Jones before setting up his own Star Pottery. Not sure when or where this was made or what the WA stands for.

[ Ian - going back that bowl could well be by Laurence McGowan - he used a series of marks after leaving Aldermaston. Blues and greens are also his type of glaze. ]

An interesting entry on the Honiton site. I didn't know ACS worked there for a time.

Is that possibly a 1969/70 date mark ?

Aldermaston jug
I think the mark on the base is a date mark rather than a monogram. Possibly the conjoined triangles for 1994; the rest may be hidden under the glaze.

They did use a generic A for larger cooperative production workThis looks as though it might be a Milk jug or such like from a larger dinner or tea set. I think only Alan Caiger Smith himself used date codes at Akdermaston.

Would make sense. I haven't seen many dates on pieces and alot of assistants' pieces are unmarked standard ware.

An unusual coffee pot, I'm guessing Geoffrey Eastop, the only "E" potter on the list,
though the mark isn't exact. Any comments?

I've been informed by ex-Aldermaston potter, Miranda Thomas, that the W and WA marks are lustre and glaze codes.
She adds that " my Aldermaston mark looks like an AT (the "T" dropping down from the cross over of the "A") At Aldermaston everyone had to include a capital A in their mark."
