Parker, maybe Parker, and Parker on Ooga Mooga

Parker, maybe Parker, and Parker on Ooga Mooga

Definitely Parker

I think this one should go in the gallery as an example of a different Parker glaze.

Parker or not Parker


I have been unsure about committing to whether the cup or small mug on the left is Parker or not, as the glaze is slightly paler than any others I have but am now very much inclined to think it is. It is definitely slipcast and has a footring that matches that of one of my Parker cast mugs, actually the one above. The "incised" waste line ring is a recurring Parker detail.

The Ku mug on the right is the same shape as one from Parker but the glaze and the filled in handle are points of difference and still leave me in some doubt.

Ooga mooga have called it Parker as it is almost identical to Paipo's one which has a Parker sticker. They have so many mugs posted they have a template system and mine was put in the Parker template as can be seen here:

Parker on Ooga Mooga

Here's Paipo's one:

And here is Paipo's Parker Maori mug after Hemara's Titian design:

I really think that the cup is Parker Pottery .... perhaps there is a saucer out there somewhere for it ....?
I will put the Ku Mug into the gallery as a possible.

I agree with your decisions on both.

For the Ku mug, if nothing else, it puts a shape there that we know Parker produced.
Much like your thoughts on using a Hobby piece as a placeholder for one from Orzel.
