Henry Hammond? - Chinese, Korean or Vietnamese

Post by climberg64 on April 9th 2012, 7:17 pm



Stoneware. Incised flower and leaf pattern. Partially obscured impressed mark.

I hoped Henry Hammond but I haven't seen a wide range of his marks and I don't know if he did any incised decoration.

Anyone more familiar with his work? Thanks for looking.

Don't think that it is Henry Hammond's mark but it is difficult to see. Can't you describe it?

The mark is a 10mm x 8mm faintly impressed cartouche containing a joined '+'; the lower part is too faint to see. The jar is 14cm tall. The second picture above shows the mark best.

What do you think?

From that I can say that it isn't Henry Hammond's mark.

It does look more like the work of Malcolm Pepper from a stylistical point of view and the mark is sort of close. However, it should have 3 horizontal lines through a vertical line and I can't see that.

Thanks SP. I've never seen either close up. I think I might take it to the museums for a comparison. The Shipley in Gateshead has the Henry Rothschild collection on permanent display and will open the cabinets if you make an appointment.

Malcolm Pepper has the three lines the same length? This has two lines visible, the top most looks to be shorter. That's why I thought HH.

But then again looking now they could be the equal. Shrugs

I sent pics to the Ashmolean and they suggest Ming or Qin period copy of Song greenware.

I've seen Henry Hammond and Malcolm Pepper misattributed to each other at auction.
Stylistically it looks much more like Malcolm Pepper. He did very good Chinese inspired work amidst a wide range of others.

Agreed, but could be fairly recent - Depends on the depth of the carving.
Mark looks oriental. Not Hammond's.

This is an example of Henry's Stamp from the Studio Pottery Website, looks similar to me.

Hammond's mark is normally horizontal, not vertical like this one .

Also it's a square stamp rather than Hammond's oval one

I no longer think it might be Hammond. I am pretty sure it's Chinese and the mark is the top half of a Chinese word, possibly the region or the factory.

Yes, itís oriental. Maybe cizhou , but the colour of the glaze points to Vietnam

Still looks British to me, but not Hammond or anyone I can think of.
