I found a bowl with this mark on today and it is made from earthenware clay.
The distinctive delightful decoration looks familiar and should help with id.
The lovely Sallies lady suggested that it was made in Spain with it having a bull on it  Laughing 
Haven't got time for pics as I have an end of year pottery function to attend, but will add some at a later date.

I have a couple of pieces of this pottery, which we use daily. The pattern is always the same, but it comes in several different colours, pale blues, browns or greens, but always a red clay base. I have never seen an earthenware one, good find! As I come across these pieces on a fairly regular basis, I doubt it is Spanish, but more likely from the South Island somewhere. I would really love to know the potter, it will come one day I'm sure.


The horse appears to be hand incised, and is always a little different.

Haha I know it's not Spanish. The decoration on my piece is different and distinctive and I've seen it before. Red terracotta clay is called earthenware in my lingo.

The pattern:


The Australian Potters marks site has this mystery mark too and someone said it could depict a unicorn ..... ?


I have a strong feeling that I have too many pots around me, as I put this bowl down not that long ago and now I can't find it amid a sea of cups and plates and bowls and I wanted to see if it has the PJG stamp on it blahumbug

Edits to say I found it and it does have the tiny PJG stamp. Darn bowl had the K Gold mug sitting inside it so was out of the radar ^.~

Progress

Post  mumof1 on Sun 18 May - 16:30

I have made a little progress with this mark. I have just been talking to a lady who used to pot here in Nelson, and was secretary of the Craft Potters, and she told me that the potter's name is Patrick something, and he called the pottery 'White Horse Pottery', somewhere in Nelson. Be careful, she said, this is earthenware, and chips easily.

The questions and answers in this auction say that the horse mark is White Horse Pottery from Nelson and possibly Patrick Gaze. I can't find any info for this name.

I will take this mark out of the Mystery Marks and add it to the main Gallery as White Horse Pottery for now.

Hi ..... sorry, it's me again. Not sure if it's a typo or an error -- potter's name should be GAZE not GARE. Cheers.

Hi............ again. Have just read ALL the entries about Patrick Gaze's work and his White Horse emblem on the bottom. There was an element of presumption on my part, but I thought that the white horse had a connection to the ancient, huge white horse which is carved into an English hillside somewhere? Hundreds of years old, apparently. cheers

Thanks, I am out atm, but will look into this later.  I saw the name Gaze on Trade Me one time, but couldn't find confirmation anywhere.


Thanks again, I have corrected all of the spelling thank you so much for your input Smile
