Yeah this shop is in a very affluent part of the city and always has really nice items, seen Moorcroft selling for in excess of £500 there, most of the things are usually way out of my price range lol.

This pot has the Leach mark - difficult to photograph as partly obscured with glaze. No potter's mark - so has anyone any idea who made it ?

It's not possible to say with any certainty at all. Any name suggested would really be a guess.

Yes it says REPEAT. Apparently it meant she made a number (100s, probably) of pieces in the same shape.

She did this with 4 different styles of dishes that I am aware of and some small footed teabowls as well. They were really only for sale at the pottery and were items that were more affordable than her more individual pieces.

For most of the time that she made them she had no-one to help her so my view is that she would have made most of them.

It was only towards the end of her life that she employed Joanna Wason to assist her.

However, compared to Shoji Hamada she was most definitely hands on. Hamada employed people throughout his career to throw most of his pots and others to make his press moulded bottles. He only decorated the majority of his pots but did say that he threw all of his chawan as well as decorating them.

Tbh, I don't think she was a very good potter.

In my opinion she was one of the most talented studio potters ever and she has to be admired for never making "Leach pots". She never played safe.

Of course some of her pots were pretty bad but considering the amount of alcohol she consummed it isn't that surprising.

My impression of her was that she was quite pushy and bossy (but compared to BL the Easter Bunny would look pushy) and she tried to make the most of the Leach name. I guess she might have rubbed some up the wrong way sometimes  Shrugs

I met someone in the 1990s in the antique business, who knew nothing about studio pottery or that the Leach Pottery was important.

He told me that the only potter he had met was in a "retreat" from which they both went awol over the wall and down to the local pub one night. That was Janet.

The honey/jam pot above would have been thrown by Bill Marshall and decorated by Bernard Leach, which isn't meant to suggest that it is any less of a Bernard Leach pot. If Bernard had thrown it then it would have been!

It will have been made later than you suggest though c 1960.

I was just going by the "circle" book that says a 1930s trial piece.

Just checked the "circle" book and see what you mean.

Maybe if you buy pots from a chocolate shop in Bond Street in 1959 they'll tell you anything to make a sale!!!!

I suppose if the one in the Wingfield Digby collection is a prototype it could have been made in the late 1930s but I was told by Bill Marshall that they started to be made on a regular basis in the early 1950s and this continued into the 1960s. There is one similar to the Wingfield Digby one on the cover of the Leach Pottery 1954 catalogue.

Why I have gone for c 1960 for your example is that Bernard's brush decoration on yours lacks the dots of the Wingfield-Digby and the catalogue examples and these tend to be attributed to later in Bernard's life.

Bernard was more of a decorator than a thrower and as he got older and his throwing became "heavier" he did less and less.

He would have painted a number of the Z bowls as well but I haven't seen any of those signed by him.

Hi, I'm trying to identify the potter for a slab vase, it has the Leach impressed mark and also an impressed mark that looka like M & R? or the R maybe a symbol.
Any clues as to who the potter is?
Thanks

I was lucky to find this on Sunday, or so I thought. I had spent every single penny in my wallet when I spotted this and had to scrounge a quid off a dealer friend to buy it. When I went back to show him, he said "What d'you buy that for? It's horrible!"
It is not the most beautiful plate in the world admittedly but it is a standard ware bread plate and IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
