So, are you saying that, although the original 'ostrich' was used from 1951-61, the scratched 'Holkham' could have been produced during those years?

It seems they had throwers and a slip moulding production pottery side. The stamps would have been used on the slip moulded pieces, and either incised pottery name or ink stamp used on the thrown pots. Cyril Ruffles continued throwing at the pottery in the 1990s and we know he incised his monogram in the base, but whether he and all his fellow throwers continued incising the pottery name or switched to the ink stamp at some point I cant tell. Unfortunately the old links are broken, but the wayback machine had some archived pages -

there is also a recent blog; the writer may have some further information on dating the pottery's marks

Nobody but nobody can tell me what period this mark belongs to.

Help.

It would help to have a photo of the whole pot too as the style can also help to date it. Usually you'll find signed pieces dated to the 50s-60s

I have several of this type of pot, with different glazes, all bearing the same mark: Cyril Ruffles and 'Holkham'

Mim81 wrote: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!

"I've never used one either but I have this signed black and metallic lustre op-art vase tall cylindrica vase, with ribbed base and indented circles ( hopefully I've attached the photos) and hoping you may know the potter and a timeline for it. Thanks

Lovely pot. Likely to be from late in the pottery’s timeline; when they had turned from thrown work to slipcast
