A very lucky buy not strictly Midwinter , but this piece is handthrown and Tubelined By the late great Jessie Tait clearly marked 1958 as good as it gets in collectors terms .

Be brave and show us the bottom so that we all know what to look for.

Many years ago, late in the day at Ally Pally, I came across two vases, one tubelined in blue and the other in blue and gold by Jessie. £16 for the two - long gone and no images I'm afraid.

Pierrot an Extremely rare Pattern Dating from the Mid 50's Designed by Jessie Tait.

 Bought off of Ebay for a verry verry Reasonable Price as the Description was Truely Awful, although it was 220 miles away from home and i could not Trust the Courier to get it back to me in the same amount of pieces as it left the Seller.

Talk elsewhere in the Forum prompted me to dig out the most boring picture below. It dates from the late 1990s and shows a new development of flats called "Midwinter Court".

When I had last visited some 15 years before the Midwinter Pottery had still been there, open and producing pottery. Before that it had been known as the Newport Pottery where Clarice Cliff wares had come off the production lines in the 1930s.

Well, I'd like to say that I found one of the 'funkier' designs but here's a little Midwinter jam pot I found yesterday. Unfortunately, there's a small chip in the lower edge and it's missing it's sister pot and the little metal stand they would both sit in.

Red enamel handpainted at the factory you could also buy it with out the red but i dont think it was so popular although presumably cheaper, but then it was the 50's so this would have been the height of fashion.

So, not Terence Conran or Jessie Tait but will the Marquis of Queensbury do?

A tureen in the Columbine pattern.  In person this looks very Scandinavian.  I was a bit underwhelmed when I first found it but the more I look at it, the more I love it.

On the back-stamp Queensbury is actually spelled Queensberry.

I met him recently at the PV of the current Teabowl exhibition at the Japanese Embassy when he introduced himself as David. We had a chat and it was only on the tube on the way home that I realised that it was David Queensbury who I had been talking to. If I had twigged earlier then I would have talk a little about Midwinter.

I spotted it in a box of other pieces at auction although not as cheap as I would have liked it was extremely reasonable and 6 years ago would have been worth about 5 times more than I paid for it , happy days.
