Bernard Moore



(1850-1935) Moore succeeded his father, Samuel Moore (d 1867) at St Mary's Works, Longton, where he traded with his brother, Samuel Vincent, as Moore Bros until the sale of the business in 1905.

Bernard Moore was President of the Ceramic Society, 1902-03 and used knowledge gained in his own extensive research in his work as consultant to many firms in Britain, other European countries and America, on technical problems in production

Moore was a leader in bone porcelain glaze research which he had begun in the 1880's, this resulted in the successful reproduction of Chinese flambe on porcelain hy 1902.

In 1905, Moore established a workshop in Stoke-on-Trent where he decorated and glazed stock from Moore Bros, and blanks made by other Staffordshire manufacturers. He was joined in 1906 by his son, Joseph Moore. His continued research into oriental and Middle Eastern glazes & successfully reproduced Persian blue, averiturine and crystalline glazes as well as a range of flambe and sang-de-boeuf effects.

Hmmm.. without actually handling it, I'm just not sure about that one. Quite apart from the rather crude decoration,
from the picture it looks more like a tin-glazed earthenware body to me.
The vast majority of Moore was on porcelain blanks, to withstand the high temperatures of the glaze firing.

Can you tell what the body is Philpot?

To be honest, I'm not 100% certain about those blue pieces earlier in this thread either.

I would have thought the decoration more to your taste than the flambe porcelain Phil?

It is Tin Glaze on a stoneware base Denby. I agree, its a real oddity. On first glancing at it I thought it was a bit of studio late 60's/ early 70's. Then turned it over and saw the mark-which is within the glaze- and did a double take. The style was just so darn weird to go with that name! It didn't cost a lot,and I bought it just out its sheer oddity. Probably will never know the truth, but its just interesting as an Oddball.

Do the crackles in the tin glaze go through the mark?

perhaps we might get answers if we posted pics of the unusual pieces in the ID My Pottery section?
Obviously Bisty and Phil would make the decision

A spooky resembelance to this mark??
I think most pieces were glazed underneath.

http://www.thepotteries.org/allpotters/749a.htm

I'm now thinking the blue pieces are more like Clews chameolean wares.

Sorry if I have a bee in my bonnet, Maybe Mordeep has something to add.
