Brannam Ware. C. H. Brannam, Barnstaple/Barum (Devon) Empty Royal Barum Ware : C H Brannam Ltd

Post by Last Chance on July 30th 2011, 9:55 pm

I am hoping that someone can help with any information regarding this vase.

It is a hyacinth vase that features the Royal Barum Ware backstamp, but we are completely at a loss as to the date it was produced, the designer's name, etc. It would be so helpful if there were any catalogues to assist us, but we have already tried the museum (of Barnstaple & North Devon) three times without success.

Any help you can provide would be most welcome. Two photos are included that may help.

My gut feeling is that it is not very old but I am not an expert in Brannam wares.

I think it might well be the backstamp that is currently used so my guess is that it is no older than 1980.

Many thanks for your input. My own thoughts are something along those lines, but it's a pity the museum cannot confirm one way or the other.

Not sure why the post ended up in 'ID' when that's not the point of the question, but hopefully it can be moved back to the British Pottery forum?

I recently bought a mixed lot of studio pottery. The one here is a large earthenware vase, height 12 inches. The body looks like Torquayware. Decorated with applied slip, very raised chestnut slip on the branches. Gloss glaze. There is an indistinct stamp on the base and another that looks like 'Made in England'. I would be most interested to learn who made it.
Thanks Pete

The vase is a Baron Barnum or Barnum Barnstaple piece of Pottery. Probably from the 1920s. They did some lovely mottoware and sgraffito and slip-decorated pieces in the late Victorian period, but the pottery was running out of steam and amalgamating with some of it's local competitors by this stage.

Post by TeTai on July 12th 2013, 6:57 pm

Hello all, I was wondering if anybody knew anything else on this specific piece.

The bottom reads Brannam 1895 / 1893? and some people have speculated that it might have
been used as an inkwell.

Very nice. Rare piece. I agree, probably an inkwell. Signed on base C.H. Brannam Barum, with date.

It does resemble the style of work produced by the Baron pottery that was established in Barnstaple in 1895 and remained there until the late 1930s. That pottery was started by William Leonard Baron, who had been the chief designer at Brannam for around 10 years up until 1893............ so, although not initialled on the base I very much suspect that it is a William Baron designed piece.
