A quick update - look what turned up in a job lot of pottery from the same auction room this week! (The pestle - the mortar is the one I asked about.) Same vendor apparently so I’m pretty sure this is a match. The Leach Pottery. St Ives - Page 17 0874b310

So are you saying that the pestle and the mortar were separated out and auctioned separately? Good grief! Should we now look for lids auctioned separately from jars, one bookend sold separately from another, cups separated from saucers, and so on?

If the items are coming from a house clearance then it's entirely possible that pieces will become separated and spread across several auctions.
And I regularly find sets of tableware, or collections of animal figurines, spread across several charity shops.

Yes, this was the “sell by the boxful” type of auction - just occasionally the boxes contain studio pottery rather than the usual dinnerware and ornaments. I’ve got five lovely lids missing their own pots, and three sad lidless pots. Luckily the good stuff makes up for it - and there’s something exciting about picking a 1970s Marks and Spencer vase out of what turns out to be a perfect Walter Keeler pot!

Thank you both... eeeeyes I can see how that would be the case. Also explains why I have a cheese dome with a slightly unexpected plate, and a flagon with a stopper that has a darker glaze. Sigh.

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.

The Leach Pottery. St Ives - Page 17 Empty Leach st Ives 8” jug. Date?

Post by benwilliams November 2nd 2021, 6:58 pm

Leach st Ives 8” jug.
Stoneware, brown and grey glazing. Scroll handle

Is this a standard ware piece and is it probably 196os?
It only has the Leach mark, no ENGLAND stamp.
Thank you

It is known in the a catalogue as a Lemonade Jug and it was 5in by 8in. It was £1.20 in a early 60's catalogue and £3.00 in a 1976 catalogue, which was amongst the more expensive things in standard ware. The most expensive being 12.5 inch DECORATED PLATE at £6.95. and those go for big money nowadays. Date? Well they made it straight through the 50's,60's and 70's!

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.

Charity shop find with a few chips. Still it is an Uncommon one. They came as a Vinegar and Olive Oil pair, with stoppers in the top. But having checked two catalogues they were in neither

Hi Philpot,
One of the most interesting pieces I read on ceramikes site was the piece about how these plates evolved from the tree of life plates previously produced by Bernard and David Leach.
I recall there was a picture of David holding one of the plates.
This 20th century forum is brilliant for someone like me as a reference point as is Mikes site!
Many thanks I will try with my limited knowledge to contribute.

Thought you might find this interesting. It is a sake set by Janet Leach all the items bear Janet’s personal seal and the St Ives studio mark.
The point of interest is that the sake pourer has the word “repeat” impressed.
I have seen both in my research on here and on auction sites that the word was used on small square pieces (as on earlier part of the thread).
In correspondence with Joanna Wason she could not recall why the word was used on such a piece as it was not done to her knowledge and only used on the small square trays.

Yes funnily enough I got about half the price I paid as a refund but later thought with the reports / letters etc…. It might be worth more in later years.
Maybe Janet stamped it after she’d been down the local for a few sherbets

Unsigned Bill Marshall

Almost the last The Leach Pottery. St Ives - Page 17 0da23910
for today - I bought this from the same vendor as the signed Yunomi, the provenance being that the vendor’s mother worked at the Leach shop in the early seventies and she purchased the vase then.
It is a heavy octagonal vase.

I am pretty sure I saw a picture of either this very pot or one like it.

I bought it on the site often referred to by a seller in Canada.
It is by Bernard Leach, has the BL stamp, the St Ives mark and an ‘ENGLAND’ stamp.
