the green glaze reminded me of Farnham, but i saw a piece only the other day and the green was lighter and more yellow. I have a few pieces of French pottery with this type of green glaze so i'm tending more towards there.

Just received this reply from the farnham collectors
Hello Eddie and Kath,

Your pottery mug is very good, and very unusual. We've not seen one like that before. The Farnham Pottery certainly did make items with faces.

The glaze looks right for Farnham Pottery and the base look OK. We can say with 90-95% certainty that it is Farnham, and it is probably a late 19th/early 20th century piece.

I contacted the Farnham museum as well as the collectors and got this reply
Thank you for the photographs of your face jug.
The design is completely new to me but the colour and the nature of the glaze is completely spot on for Farnham Greenware. I would expect the fabric of the clay to be quite orange in colour.
One cannot categorically say that this is definitely from the Wrecclesham pottery as very few of their products were signed or stamped. However, I would certainly say that the likelihood is that it was made there.
There is really no more that I can tell you. The peak period for producing pots with this distinctive green glaze was in the first 20 or 30 years of the last century.
I hope that this helps

With regards

Anne Jones
Curator
So I reckon I will open a farnham thread as I have another small vase that more or less concludes this is farnham from around the 1900's

Could it be Kitchener? There's something about the eyes and the 'tache.

Yes I thought Kitchener, but as Ed said that was the fashion then. A bit off-topic but one of my Celeries looks like him:

Some of the articles on the website are quite good. I tend to agree with Brin a lot of interior designer type stuff has to be sifted out to find the useful stuff. Shrugs

Not sure that I would have too much faith in what "Knocker" says as it really isn't his type of thing.

That's not a dig at Mr. Knowles because quite frankly I wouldn't have much faith in my own opinion!
