O. C. Stephens Empty An O.C. Stephens jug from Marcus

Even though this piece needs some professional TLC -
it is a good example of the work made and the gorgeous glazes that were used.

O. C. Stephens Empty OC Stephens mug with blue glaze inside

Brooke and Olwyn Talbot-Titley's OC Stephens cast mug with blue inside.

These coloured ones are lovely. I think this is the first I have held.

Note that unlike the brown one above this has a footring.
Mine, like Kat's one, have flat bottoms too.

The Stephens mark is simpler and small.

I didn't measure it, assuming the same shape, but it looks taller than Kat's one, and my own.

That is just weird isn't it? Looks like Crown Lynn but in fact is O C Stephens.
Luck you Kat as his work is rather collectable !!

O. C. Stephens Empty a small OC Stephens bowl (and an Ambrico #10)

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Tue 19 Jul - 13:12

Although I have both cast and thrown mugs by OC Stephens I am constantly tempted by his other wares for sale on trademe. No more. This one small dish is all I need.

I always seem to miss the old pots at opshops so I think I must have arrived just after this small Stephens bowl and an Ambrico #10 vase were put out for sale at Henderson Salvation Army shop last Thursday at $2 each. I'm counting the latter as my first Ambrico vase opshop find.

Both vases are crazed (barely visible on the OCS) but otherwise perfect.
