I know I've seen this before,but I can't bring to mind who it is, and I can't read the backstamp. I KNOW that one of you will know straight away. Thank you.

Radford Handcraft Pottery, Burslem. (E. Radford). Empty Any info please on "peasant ware" pottery

Post by vanmann on October 30th 2012, 10:39 pm

I have this 7 1/4 inch tall vase decorated with a stylish leaf pattern. To me the style looks 1930s- 50s but I could easily be wrong on that. Base is marked "Peasant ware" plus initial GV. I can't find any trace of this anywhere and wonder if it has any age or is a retro style modern piece. All suggestions and thoughts appreciated John

I'm inclined to think it's fairly early Radford.

If it is, then it's not a mark or pattern I've ever seen before.

Have now been in touch with http://www.radfordcollect.com/ who were very helpful and have confirmed that this is by E. Radford and that the Peasant and also Gay Peasant labels were used for a short time. They have included a photo with a Radford backstamp in the same pattern.
The other marks on my original photo are GV being pattern mark and the # mark being that of an unknown paintress.

All in all a good result I think

Hi!
I bought this lovely pot yesterday.. it's my thing.. I buy what I like and then enjoy researching it when I get home to find out as much as possible!
I think it's an earlier Radford pot and I know WG is the pattern.. but does anyone know what the second G is for or the little triangle?

Any Radford enthusiasts who can help me please? Anything you know would be great and much appreciated! Theres not a huge amount to find out online (I've been looking and looking all yesterday)

I dont like to be defeated! Ha!
Many thanks!

This is commonly called E Radford. Pre-war, and a fairly common pattern.
Probably a decorators mark.
The factory records were destroyed in a fire, so there is not much info on this stuff.

Thank you! No wonder I cant find much out when looking! I mean I found a record of patterns but dates are quite vague.
I'm happy with my little pot anyway! I only bought it for 75p!
Thanks again!
