Lovely set of Coxwold pottery. His ‘winter’ tree mark is earlier than the ‘summer’ one, but he did seem to have two or there versions of the ‘summer’ one, presumably because they got lost or wore out over the years

Afternoon folks, anyone any ideas as to whom the mystery marks on this pot belong to ?
The Coxwold mark is present, along with Peter Dicks personal seal to the side. The base marks are not ones I am familiar with. Could it be an early mark used by Colin Kellam?
I have other Coxwold pieces with mystery monograms that I presume were collaborations , one I sold a few months back which had the mark of David Winkley, the others I will add to this list as I unearth them from storage.
Any ideas as to whom this mark belongs to are much appreciated, thank you.

As it has Peter Dick’s personal seal then I doubt the other one is another potter’s mark. Maybe a glaze trial

An enormous Coxwold Pottery cider jar, 17 inches high, 12 inches across the middle, and made from almost 13 lbs of clay.

That is the most impressive piece of Coxwold I have seen, stunning. I am surprised it doesn't carry a personal seal. I will try to stop drooling, easier said than done !!!

That is beautiful. Wonder if it was a commission peace? As a utilitarian jug, it must be almost impossible to use at 13lb plus weight of liquid.

It has a tap hole near the base and would need to be filled through a funnel from the top. No idea how much it would hold but it would be a very large amount of cider! Discovered in a charity shop in Oxfordshire.

The tragedy is of course, that such a magnificent piece of work ended up in a charity shop. It was obviously someone's pride and joy at one time, being a statement piece that fills a lot of space. Unfortunately, the same thing happens to a lot of studio pottery that is not of the fashion of the moment. Its monetary worth being nowhere near its original purchase price.
Luckily, it has now found a new home where it will be appreciated. As a matter of interest, where are you going to put it? We have downsized recently - with a garage full of pottery waiting to be unpacked!- and have found the process of 'downsizing' a large pottery collection a hard slog. A piece like this deserves a stand unto itself, to be a major focal point.

Yes it is rather splendid, and of course as soon as I spotted it in the charity shop I had to have it regardless of the fact that all possible surfaces in my house (and then some) are already crowded with studio pots. Display of this particular piece is going to be problematic. I'm working on it ... Pondering

That's a good one Denby. You probably already know that this is an uncommon and popular design, also quite uncommon to have his personal mark. Lovely piece 👍

In all honesty I'm not to well up on this pottery,
I think this maybe the first piece I have found.

That's a good one to start with. The darker glazed pieces are more commonly seen.

A solid, heavy (for its size) saltglazed stoneware bowl. The mark is very clear and I'm sure it's one I've seen before.

Coxwold Pottery - Peter and Jill Dick - Page 2 Empty Lotzi, Hungarian. IH mark for Ian Howie. OK mark possibly a test piece

Post by NaomiM Tue Nov 24, 2020 6:40 am

There seems to have been at least 3 versions of their tree stamp which I'll call Spring (no apples), Summer (with apples on the tree), Autumn (apples on the ground), and Winter (bare branches with or without the apples on the ground) - they may be leaves rather than apples, and the 'apples on the group' might represent crops growing in the field.

I asked Jill Dick about the mystery marks:
The Coxwold tree and accompanying OK mark she thinks is an early experiment by Peter. She said she might remember more if she saw the whole pot but unfortunately I only have a photo of the mark.
The unusual Coxwold jug on ebay is by a Hungarian potter Lotzi who worked at the pottery for a while, which explains the European shape. She couldn't remember her surname.
The IH mark is for Ian Howie.
The tree is an apple tree because the pottery is in an old orchard. Not sure where I heard about the number of apples/leaves representing the number of years, anyway she debunked that. Instead it's the number of branches in the tree represents the number/birth of their children.
