I have various pieces of Holkham  featuring the Celtic Band decoration, I find that I have 3 different monograms and wonder if anyone knows who the potters may be. One is CR which I know is Cyril Ruffles, one is HS/SH and one is R

A small signed Holkham bowl I picked up recently. What sort of age would this be?

Found this piece  from Holkham the other day. What period was the stamp on this item used?

This little pot is not looking like the Holkham Pottery I've seen on the web or the forum. Could anyone tell me if it's the Norfolk Holkham Pottery?
I think it's incised JS although it looks as if it's been inscribed again over the same spot.

I've bought a new camera...of course not just for shots of pots...no!......but check these out for lamplight shots.

Never mind the pot, I think your wall needs a lick of paint! That camera is too good.

The pottery was in operation for a long time, with a lot of throwers and decorators, not all of them recorded.

ok thanks Naomi.
Essenjay goodness me!...that's not my wall! It's some artwork that's a bit heavy on the texture and I'm not quite sure where to hang it. Hmmm not the best background for pottery shots now you mention it.

Unfortunately our walls really are like that! Just one problem of living in an old cottage with a slight damp problem. That's why I always try to take photos for this board (and eBay) outdoors. Embarrassed

I'm not convinced that the crackly glaze on this is up to the Holkham Pottery's usual high technical standard; maybe credible as an early experimental piece, but 1974? I suspect it was by someone working independently in Holkham village.

The decoration and glaze reminds me of the work of the rather obscure Fen Pottery from the 1950s:

It fits perfectly with the description and the photo of Fen Pottery work...thought it was an oddball for 'Holkham Pottery' from what I've seen.
Thank you HB.

Very plain elegant little stoneware oil-bottle. Seems to be handthrown. Pre-1961 mark without the "Ltd".

Shakespeare 400th anniversary commemorative dish from 1964. Described on the reverse as "A Holkham-Lidor production for W.H. Smith". Unfortunately, the designers' creative energies seem to have been exhausted on the magnficent backstamp. Lidor was a firm based in Purley - I'm not sure what they actually did.

Not sure what else can be added; all the information about what they are and who made them and when and who designed them is included in the base.

I know they are numbered 78 & 86 but wondered how many was in the run or any other information really as i have been unable to find any other images or information on them on the internet.

I remember my nan having these on her shelf with various other Holkham pieces as my granddad used to work there. I used to help him put the lamp bases together when I stayed with them.

As you say the numbers refer to how many were made as part of a limited edition - maybe 100 or 200 of each, although since they haven't written it as 86/100 or 86/200 there may not have been a limit; they were only limited by the time it took to produce them before the Coronation. If they were the pattern number I'd expect them to be part of the ink stamp rather than handwritten.

Tom Borthwick must have had quite a "thirst", as this tankard holds about a pint and a half. So the whole, huge thing filled weighs about twice what a normal tankard would.

Jumping on the Holkham Pottery thread to just show you my lovely lamp.
I do not know when it dates from.. I always thought 70s but the stamp seems to point at earlier if what I have read is correct?
The stamp is a bit of a mess.. presuming it was hard to stamp a curved surface?
If anyone knows a date I'd love to know!
I didnt buy this.. it was my Nannas I always loved it and it reminds me of happy memories of lots of time spent at my Nannas when I was a child. I always used to say it was a giant shell!
When my grandad died and my nanna got dementia and had to go into a home, I was given this lamp by my auntie who was tasked with clearing the house as she knew I'd always loved it - nobody else in the family has understood why I have always loved it as they all think its ugly! ( To me it's sentimental!) But I dont think its ugly at all!  Beating Heart

I’ve not come across this piece before. It looks 1970s in style; the pottery was in operation for quite a while and new pieces are turning up all the time.

Can anyone tell me when Holkham produced the pieces that are simply incised 'Holkham', scratched into the base?

May not be possible to date it. Holkham Pottery was set up in the early 50s and they used a stamp early on om moulded wares, but their throwers, such as Cyril Ruffles, incised their monograms on pots along with an incised Holkham Pottery, so it's easier to date those based on the throwers' length of employment at the company. They also used an ink stamp on some pieces.

Can anyone help me to date some Holkham.

The marks on the bottom are a simple "Holkham' etched into the base.

What are the years that this mark was used?

I cannot find out so far for the life of me.
