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.

The base of the above teapot. Wire cut, and a darker earthenware from the Coffee Jar.

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

An earthenware jug with a type of decoration I have never seen on any other early St Ives pieces.

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 )

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.

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.

Its the style. The celadon and Oak Leaf decoration is classic Leach standard ware style a few years either side of 1950. They are very well made, and a lot were just never used.

The glaze on the lid is a bit lumpy

Just picked up two pieces of standardware and trying to tie them down to a rough date range. The question I have is when was the impressed ENGLAND added to the mark?

After 1956 when Janet Leach joined. Safest assumption is late 50's and the 60's.

The large one looks pretty much standard coffee pot type. Back in thise days of course 'Coffee' was a jug of Instant Nescafe!
There are several jugs and a full scale coffee set coming at W.H.Lane in St Ives on 28 June. The estimates look at tad optimistic!
