I have come across a number of Leach Pottery items with personal marks that I have not been able to identify. I imagine at the time it wasn't given much consideration and if someone started to attempt it now then it would be too late.

So I have absolutely no idea, who made the bowl and I am not even ruling out Colin Pearson. However, I have seen nothing to indicate that he made a single pot there. If there was some evidence that Colin went to the Leach Pottery in the 1960s to help him get used to throwing stoneware rather than earthenware that he had used until then, I would think that the bowl in question was his.

However, with the vague information that we have, I would not buy it believing it was by Colin or sell it with the suggestion that Colin made it.

Certainly looks like Pearson’s mark with the St Ives mark. The style looks very Aylesford-like. If I hadn’t seen the marks my first guess would have been Aylesford Pottery. I wonder if Pearson and David Leach developed the Aylesford range at St Ives?

So here is another one then.

Recently sold on Ebay as Geoffrey Whiting with Leach St Ives interest.Went for £75. I was somewhat dubious about the attribution itself. But the seller said he had bought it from a trusted auction house which had said it was Geoffrey Whiting. Weeeelllll Yes, we've been there before! Laughter
But anyway. Who is it?

David and Colin did that at the Priory and in the beginning it was earthenware, just as David was using at Lowerdown. By the stoneware days, David was keeping away from St. Ives and Janet! Remember both David and Michael Leach left the Leach Pottery when Janet came on the scene in 1955. Therefore the logic is that if Colin would have needed to go anywhere to practise throwing stoneware in the 1960s it would have been Lowerdown or almost anywhere other than St. Ives.

The 'Leach Family Tree' from from Mike's pots - formerly Ceramike- is a fascinating and surprisingly long one. Well worth looking at.

Standard Ware teapots are relatively rare in the range. Here are two each different. The cane handle seemed standard. In the 1975 standard ware price list similar teapots were £6.50. Compare this to a present day similar style 2 pint Winchcombe teapot which is £85.The Leach Pottery. St Ives, Cornwall  - Page 16 Img_0159The Leach Pottery.

A rare chess set from St Ives. A stoneware with a chequered design in matt manganese and mushroom glaze. The porcelain pieces covered in manganese and mushroom glaze. St Ives seal to tile. 27.5 cms wide.
This came with a photo of the chess set authenticated by David Leach. Apparently it was given to the owner by Bernard Leach.

I’ve seen the oak leaf pattern on the standard ware but not this one. Is it rare and when, do you think, was it made?

It is uncommon but not rare. Made just after the WW2 circa 1947- 55. It was part of the standard range that had someextra twiidles on it.

Byron Temple worked at the Leach pottery in the late 50's and then returned in the 1970's. He had a bust up with Janet Leach however, and after this he went to work at John Leach's Mulcheney pottery for some while. His work at Mulcheney seems to have consisted mostly of Work similar to John Leach's Black Mood pieces. This piece however is which was at auction just recently as it is a 'Black Mood' piece with the St Ives and Byron Temple's own mark on. It must be quite rare,The Leach Pottery.

A very interesting early St Ives piece by Janet Leach circa 1960, four years after she came to the pottery. There are photos of two similar examples in Emmanuel Cooper's book on Janet Leach, from the collection they had at Camberwell. This is a very different style from the one she settled at when at St Ives, and shows a potter experimenting and searching. The hammer price on this particular piece was £320,

Janet Leach's mark on the bottom. The base was also interesting in that it was partly concave then sloping to the flat part.

The large dinner plate is probably one of the rarest of the Leach standard Ware, as they probably mostly got broken. They were also one of the most expensive items in the range.
