Holkham Hall in Norfolk is a Palladian style mansion, home of the Coke family and the Earls of Leicester and built between 1734 and 1764 by the first Earl of Leicester, Thomas Coke.

A pottery was established at Holkham Hall more than 50 years ago, making it the first stately home to produce pottery on-site to sell in the gift shop.  Holkham Pottery ceased manufacture in September 2007.

Holkham Pottery Empty Holkham Pottery Item

Post by tomtimtom Fri Aug 21, 2009 7:48 pm

Hi PiP
The item displayed is not a candle holder it is in fact a sugar bowl ( catalogue no T112 i think )from the Owl Tea /Coffee set which comprised of 6 owl mugs,1 Sugar bowl,1 milk jug, 1 coffee/ tea pot, The mugs came in two sizes with the colours being Green/ Blue/Grey /Brown, With some mugs Yellow.
I worked at the pottery in 1969 and at that time it was quite busy and employed forty people.
At that time Cyril Ruffles was the main Thrower of pottery and inscribed his initials on every piece ( CR ) but sadly Cyril is no longer with us. His studio pottery has become extremeley popular today.
There were some other throwers of pottery however they did not make as many pieces as Cyril. Tom Borthwick ( TB ) Paul Trett (trett )
and quite a few students inscribed there work, And some pieces never were signed.
Another very sort after and rare collection is the snowdrop Tea Set as it was the first tea set made with the early stamp mark ( 1951 ) with the words Holkham Pottery. Hand Made In Norfolk England. In 1961 the stamp mark changed to Made In England Holkham Pottery LTD Norfolk. You can always tell if the snowdrop pieces are early because all the decoration was hand painted with the later pieces done in transfer. I do hope this is of help to you

Hi Tom - welcome to the board. I'm positive my item at the top of this thread is a candleholder - because it had wax in it (filled up in the vessel rather than a loose one inside) and had an original gold foil label saying it was a Holkham scented candle. I've got the photos of it from the top and the label somewhere - I'll bung them up here when I've located them :-) The candlewax is bright red so it's very festive looking with the green holder.

By the way, I visited Holkham Hall a couple of weeks ago on my seaside holiday - I'll put some photos of the hall up as well.

Holkham Pottery Empty Holkham Potteries / Elaine Goddard - Information required

Post by Simon Leak Sat Jul 03, 2010 3:33 pm

Hi,

I brought what i feel is a rather lovely vase/plant holder? last weekend and wanted to know a little more about Holkham potteries and any association Elaine Goddard may have had. The piece I brought is boat shaped for want of a better word and I am not sure what purpose it would have served?

The little research I have done revealed Elaine Goddard to be a potter/designer working with Fulham potteries from the 1930's to 60's.

Any help that any of you can give would be much appreciated. Dates, what it is, names, and any association with Holkham etc.

Thank you in advance.

Simon

Holkham Pottery Empty Re: Holkham Pottery

Post by yorrick Fri Sep 02, 2011 3:47 pm

Hello

I was browsing and trying to find some information on a Holkham piece I have and what do you know it is almost identical to the one shown above by Hercules Brabazon.

The piece I have is slightly different in that the design that runs around it is in two shades of green and is without the underlying white ring.

I think that the Holkham mark is also etched with the single letter "M".

Can anyone, particularly Hercules or Tom, tell me who's monogram this is and when the piece was produced?

I would appreciate any information anyone can provide.

Thanks

Following on from my last post it struck me that what I have taken as an "M" monogram may also be a "W" depending on which way up you look at it. Silly me.

Hello

Interesting to compare Hercules's piece with he one here. It seems clear to me that my piece is much inferior in its accomplishment; less sharp and the shape itself seems much the less pleasing. I would take a guess that mine is the earlier of the two and seems to be trying out a design which reaches its potential in Mr Brabazon's beautiful, simple example.

I know little of these things but that is the opinion of this layman. Any comments would be very welcome

Post by artyann Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:53 am

Hi everyone, i'm new to all this so i hope i do it right!
I have a nice tankard,it has a very faint impressed holkham and england stamp on the bottom. Hopefully, if i can upload my photos you will se the decoration,but if not i'll try to describe it to you. Its 6" high, tapering to the top, and has various figures on it with a little saying below each one, eg a peasant type lad with the words - buy a rabbit, buy a rabbit, and a 'madam' holding a fan saying come with me sir!!! plus a couple more. Along the top edge is a row of goblets,drinking vessels, pots etc in mono tone.

Has anyone any idea of an age or any history of the design etc, i would love to know.
Thank you.
ps- i tried to load the images but all i got was a box full of sample pics and adverts and terms and conditions. oh well..........

Post by Mim81 Wed Feb 29, 2012 10:13 am

Hi I'm Keith Corrigan's grandaughter. Keith Corrigan set up Holkham Pottery in 1951 with Lady Leicester. I have a lot of information on the pottery, family knowledge from my Mother and her brothers and letters, glazing recipes, patterns/designs, newspaper cuttings etc. So if we can help in any way we would be glad to. Also if anyone has any Holkham pottery with my Grandfather's initials on the bottom I would be most interested to see it. 'KGC' or 'KC'.
I have never used a forum before so apologies if I don't do it right!

Holkham Pottery Empty I.D This Little Holkham Dish Please.

Post by Raven Wed Feb 29, 2012 3:01 pm

Hi, I bought this delightful little Holkham dish from my local charity shop for £2.99 and wondered if anyone could please tell me a little about it. It is 5 1/2 inches in diameter and an inch high...I managed to find out that it was produced after 1961 because the back stamp says "Holkham Pottery LTD Norfolk".
can anyone recognise the design style or who the artist might have been please.

Picked up a pair of dark grey Holkham Owl mugs today, from the local RSPCA shop.
They join a Holkham mug which I bought from the same shop last year, which has the CR initials for Cyril Ruffles.
