I don't think even flowers could have saved it.

No, I know the Aylesford vases that you are talking about and it really is that funny edge that is the problem.

Coffee pot with that interesting lid set up. And in real life is much more colourful than my photos portray.
I guess about the same date as the other one on the thread but I've no evidence for that.

I think that studio pottery coffee pots were a mid 1960s to mid 1970s phenomenon. They hardly ever got used and so stopped being made.

I got this at the boot sale Saturday morning meaning to sell it for a handsome profit.
Saturday afternoon, the neighbour invites me round for a drink, so I think I'll try the Aylesford goblet with a bottle of Abbot Ale.....
WHAT A COMBINATION!!!!
Bottled Abbot is sublime at the worst of times but drinking it from this transports you back to the middle ages.
It definitely is not going on ebay until I've worn it out.
A completely new drinking experience and highly recommended.

Long necked jug. And an unusual small slip decorated bowl with a sandy textured surface by Aylesford pottery; possibly from their more recent ranges.

The Friars Pottery, Aylesford. - Page 2 Empty Aylesford Friars Sugar Bowl / Yunomi Tea Bowl?

Post by benwilliams April 4th 2019, 4:49 pm

Hi, my question is - is this a sugar bowl for a tea set or is it a yunomi type tea bowl?
It has a foot and is 8.6 cm at rim, 9.4 cm at widest.
Also what date would it be? Thanks.

I would say sugar bowl. Wrong shape for a chawan type teabowl or beaker, and The Friars potters were more tableware than Japanese pieces

4 wine or brandy goblets for £2 at the boot sale is the sort of thing you can't pass up.
One has an early AP stamp which is even better, but probably means that they were bought separately.

Looks like an early piece. It’s a glaze that’s also found on early Muchelney Pottery by John Leach so I think it’s something developed by David Leach and introduced to Alyesford when he set up the pottery

Boot sale this am: I'm just examining a plate that looks Leachey but is unmarked and an acquaintance peers over my shoulder and remarks "Leach?". Well, it's not and I replace it. Then, blow me, at the next stall is this......
I've got one at home already but it pales into insignificance when compared to this one. Heavy, deeeeeeply incised, breaking colour glazes in the grooves and more capacious - this holds a whole 500 ml can of Whatevs.

A substantial amount of Aylesford pottery comes up in charity shops, Boot sales and Ebay (David Leach's Aylesford pottery..oh yeah!). So there production must have been quite substantial. Equally. it is nearly all of a high quality and well made, and was in production for a long time. Yet not a great deal seems to be written about it.
