but who is this Tim Mathieson? I haven't come across his work

do you have a pic of the signature please Naomi?

He was a suggestion made by Naomi in the EH Matthews thread.
I agree it's very frustrating. I sold mine not knowing !

Clutching at straws.... I wonder of there's any clue in the steam engine being named after the Scottish village of Strathpeffer?

It also says "1862" just behind the funnel. According to the †Wikipedia article on Strathpeffer "The arrival of the railways in Dingwall in 1862 did much to bring more visitors to the town."

I see why everyone is frustrated, apart from the auction of the two plaques (giving the name T Matthews) there really is nothing to find on the internet!...yet

female blue and white ceramic figure no markings

Post by debbie32 on May 28th 2016, 5:03 pm

Does anyone recognise this:





She measures approx 4.25 x 4" and 3/4" deep. There is no glaze on the back and it has a hole for hanging. Any help as always is really appreciated, even if its to tell me to stop buying tat :)

I'm talking to someone who has a piece marked M which adds to my Matthews theory, they hopefully will send me an image so I can post it here

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 donít know about a Matthews working there
