After spotting a similar one on ebay, I'm wondering if someone has made the lid after breaking the original pottery one of that shape.

Just had a message from an Ambleside collector to say that the lid is original. Happy

Ambleside from the 50's and 60's. Those blue tones and lovely sgraffitto.Definitely a collectable of the future. But given the lowly prices,the very Far Future. Big Laughter
The most desirable pieces are those with the Cook signature with the Ambleside. These are much more uncommon.

Feeling a bit inadequate after that gorgeous piece of Oldmagpie's Embarrassed . Anyhow, here's my first ever piece of Amblesde got for £2.99 in an Ilkley charity shop today. 6cm (height)

I have three pieces of Llangollen and that's pretty much the limit of my knowledge but the clay is different to yours, the glaze is different and all three are clearly marked Llangollen

Here is some nice Ambleside Mugs by George Cook. These are more sought after designs than the geometric designs and command good prices.

Ambleside Pottery Empty I know it says Ambleside??

Post by Guest November 13th 2014, 2:45 pm

It doesn't look like the normal mark, so thought it best to put here and see if it is the same Ambleside pottery as in the Ambleside thread.
Approx' 12" diameter charger.

Thanks Ed, only seen the hand etched ones but I guess this was made by being squashed into a mould.

Hi Denby, could you give me a rough estimation of when it may have been made?

I've found George Cook in the book (cooking the book) Oh dear Embarrassed

But not much info' there.

Would this have been made by George?

I always understood the slipware was more the 50s,
and the sgraffito more the 60s. (closed 1966).

A couple of early slipware dishes, with the "mesh" imprinted back. Not uncommon, but all
unique in their own way.

Yay. I missed the date on this item when I saw the photos on ebay. Not only is it signed x2 but there is a 57.

Zip I noticed a collector advertising for info on ebay. Was that him? He got the elbow.

Not seen any birds? Did you see a photo?
