This was a St Ives chess set by Bill Marshall which went for £800 hammer price recently. A rare item.

Do you think this was a special commission? or made for his own use .

I think it would have been a special commission. The set had the St Ives mark on it as well. It was a working commercial pottery and there have been different sorts of oddments out of the norm at auction over the years. For a good deal of the time they only made teapots to order I believe.

Philpot, am I mistaken or do I see writing under the glaze of this pot?

Regards,

Jay.

There was some writing on this, but I could never decipher it properly. Long gone now though, after downsizing!
In the mid early to mid 1920's The Leach St Ives pottery did a fair amount of motto work just do bring some money in. The most prized pieces are those by Michael Cardew which you still see around at auction occasionally.

Shame you never deciphered it.

My ex missus is a great niece of Michael Cardew and she has many of his pots & quite a few with quotes/mottos. She commissioned Ara to make me a tankard with a distinct logo & motto for me some years ago which I still use to this day.

Regards,

Jay.
