In the 1920s Edward  Radford was working for H J Wood Ltd , Harry Wood marketed Radford's work with the backstamp 'E Radford, England, Hand painted', and later set up Radford Handcraft Pottery which traded up to 1948 when Radford retired, H J Wood continued making pots to his designs and marked them with the 'E Radford' backstamp

what I would like to know is
a, when was this made?
b, what was it designed to be used for?
c, is the ETE mark a decorators mark?

It would appear the ete is decorators mark, HJ Wood continued to produce Radfords designs into the 1960's and marked them with a printed E.Radford backstamp , what it was used for? Dunno, ....Target practice? Big Laughter

ET is the pattern type and I think E is the background colour.

See this site for more info

Post by SpoonLicker on June 23rd 2019, 2:57 pm

I'm sure I've seen this somewhere but now I'm coming up with nothing.
The base is embossed with WOODS ENGLAND 1212 and printed Radford England Handpainted.
Anyone have any information about the artist?
Thank you.

Radford pottery by H J Wood / Wood & Sons (Woods). Empty 1950s 1960s 9” moulded vase marked MARTIN / MARTON - H.J. Wood / Radford

Post by benwilliams on July 18th 2019, 3:32 pm

Hand painted, looks late 50s to me. Moulded mark on base is unclear 2 words or numbers.
Second line reads MARTIN or something similar eg MARTON.
Any ideas. Reminds me of Radford type pottery.

Can't make it out, but could be the shape or even pattern code.

An E. Radford 3-section dish, pattern no. 941 (moulded mark in top left section in bottom pic) with E. Radford backstamp + 'E', but no marks regarding Woods. I'm guessing it dates from the 1950s/60s.

Yes post war. I tend to leave out the "E" when describing this period.
Just an ink-stamp.

The real E Radford is here:

The Woods Radford is pleasant enough in its own right, I suppose, but the original is much better. It's the pottery equivalent of the Bootleg Beatles.

Some of it is nice, and collectable, but not in the same league as the the pre-war.

Radford pottery by H J Wood / Wood & Sons (Woods). Empty Woods/Radford 'Genoa' vase.

Post by Grumpy Grandad on April 12th 2020, 2:26 pm

One very similar to the twin-handled vase posted by benwilliams on this thread.
Impressed marks 'Made in England. Genoa'. Painted decorator's mark 'B'. Lower, in very faint script is 'Woods Ware. Made in England'. Very pretty hand-painted butterflies decoration and yes, that is a faint hairline on the back.
