only one that I own is signed & dated 1983,I can find no info on JHMatthews however the seller informed me he was a  ceramic artist working in England.

The plaques are all slip molded by the look of them

So like a Hornsea Clappison Muramic, even the "Cordon" pattern is evident in there.

Jim Matthews - Wall plaques Empty Old flower design hanging plaque-is it Scandinavian? - T Matthews?

Post by stardust* January 14th 2016, 3:30 pm

This caught my eye, I'm assuming it's not british just by the design (though I'm almost always wrong!) The underside has no mark but an indentation and marks left from, I think, it being poured into a mould.
I can't find anything the same on searching. I think it was used under a teapot!
Can anyone help?

more info from an ebay seller

Furthur to your earlier message when I first bought this plaque just before Christmas, googled it but couldn't find any info or likely maker
three days ago in a not very good local collectors market I came across a letter rack clearly made by the same pottery
It had a label on the back which I wish I had photo'd but didn't and now can't remember
It was something like Matthews pottery Gomshall Mill or somewhere definitely in Surrey
I guess you already know this as you said English pottery

There was a Molly Coryn, Gomshall Pottery, Surrey, in the 1950s but I don’t know about a Matthews working there

Finally we have a positive ID Jim Matthews - Wall plaques 822202 , via a message to the forum:

Jim Matthews was my ceramic lecturer at Art college in the late 1970s and 80s. The original pottery was established in his home in Morden in Surrey and moved to the Old Dairy in Gomshall in the early 1980s.. I worked for him when I left college and the pottery made hand cast flat earthenware ,.. wall plaques, door numbers , board games etc..... happy days for me
