Rushton pottery (Isle of Man)

Post by tudorrose on October 20th 2009, 6:25 pm

Hi,

Having purchased this "CELTIC" incised coffee pot and 2 smaller pots, wondered whether they are "CELTIC Pottery", Newlyn Cornwall? Having checked out their gallery & history think I am barking up the wrong tree. Any info or point of reference would be appreciated. Would anyone also know why there are holes running around the rim of the larger of the two pots, what would this one be used for?

I have attached a thumbnail photo of opur Newlyn pot, which retains the original gold foil stamp, but this work is quite different to the "CELTIC" pots.

Many thanks M & S

Thankyou all,
Thats a great start, and much appreciated.

There is also a very faint black stamp which is difficult to decipher. This sits under the "CELTIC" incised mark on the sugar pot only.

Looks like R*****C Pottery followed by an indistinguishable longer word, probably the location? far too faint to photo with macro though- Will get researching....

Thanks Sharron

definately not Celtic pottery Newlyn,they don't look like Celtic pottery Ireland either

possibly Celtic is the design rather than the pottery

Back to my pots!
It does resemble a tutrle!

Mike has since remembered that the lady we had it from, said she bought it years ago from the Isle of Man. So we have now, (rightly or wrongly) deduced from the faint stamp which begins with an "R" that it may be Rushton Pottery? Its certainly seems to be a seven letter word beginning with "R" and the next word fits "POTTERY". Might they have made a Celtic range in their lifetime? Think it has closed now- does this jog any ones memory banks?

Post by NaomiM on February 22nd 2017, 7:51 pm

Unmarked vase. The mustard glaze looks like Bertoncello but it also has s moulded brown design round the middle.

Most of these have "CELTIC" in capitals impressed on the bottom, so for ages these
were confused with, and of course sold as, Celtic pottery of Cornwall.
Eventually I saw one with a sticker aswell, which gave the pottery name and
ended the confusion.
