An interesting early earthenware motto lidded jar. Probably from around the mid-20's, when the St Ives made this sort of motto ware to sell to visiting tourists. Times were tough!

The base of the above jar. The earthenware clay is a lot lighter than other examples, and the base is not wire cut.

A genuine rarity. An earthenware St Ives Teapot. Its been through the wars a bit. No lid. Stapled at the bottom. One of the very few worthwhile buys I have ever made at the Peterborough East Of England antiques fair.

The other side of the above St Ives teapot is substantially different in glazing.

A lidded St Ives soup bowl, with a few chips. Looks like a precursor to post-war standard ware.

Probably 1960'S possibly early 70's Standard Ware. The England mark was used then. Never quite seen a convincing explanation as to why the ENGLAND mark was used, although read somewhere it was to do with the variations in purchase tax, which was the basic goods tax before VAT was introduced with EU membership in 1972.

Cheers Philpot, makes sense.. I wondered if it an export thing for a bit. Any famous potters there at that time I wonder, not exactly my mug of tea though 😁

Janet and Bernard Leach. Bill Marshall. These were the only ones that really used a personal mark in that period. Things got a lot more casual in the late 70's when lot more personal marks were allowed.
A lot of these would have been produced. Leach standard ware in the 60's was a thriving business, and the potting crew would have been up to maybe even eight potters, of whom all worked on the Standard ware.

The mugs would have been made by fairly new apprentices so I think it is safe to say that it wasn't made by a potter, who was well known or famous at the time.

Those two end ones still look quite odd to me. The theme that runs through nearly all Leach standard ware is consistency of quality. The form, shape and quality of glaze was pretty much the same quality over 40 years. You knew what you were getting. Those two look just completely out of left field.

I assumed they were seconds. N was saying they did have problems with the glaze mix. I find them interesting and value them more than the normal ones or the same period. Would like more.

Are you sure this is Leach Pottery? Looks totally wrong to me, is it marked? (Old post, but I only just saw it Happy )

I’m assuming the jug has the St Ives stamp.

Yes it did. But long gone now I'm afraid. The interesting point is how little we actually know about the earthenware St Ives pieces.There is very little of it around, and most of what there is tends to come from the 1930's.

Bernard Leach auctioned at Newmarket (Tattershalls the venue is an experience in itself!). 15 cms stoneware vase with very unusual Japanese views decoration. An old maybe 1920's Bernard Leach mark. Sold at hammer price of £2,200 to a buyer from Japan.Leach Pottery - St. Ives  - Page 11 Img_7717

I saw this one, or a very similar one, at the Spittlefields pop-up antiques fair in London last year. Seller had £2000 on it.

The auctioneers were based in Ely.The provenance story being that it had been given to a relative directly by Bernard Leach. More likely to be true than not one suspects, because if it was for sale at one of the high end London auctioneers like Sothebys it might well have got a higher price.
