Anton Pottery Nelson NZ

Post  antonsdaughter on Wed 30 Dec - 7:03

Hi Everyone
My parents were potters here in Nelson during the 70's and 80's. They had a studio out at Upper Moutere called Anton Pottery.  Dad passed away 14 years ago now and Mum doesn't have much of his work (long story there).  I want to put together information to pass onto my children about their Grandfather's work, so I'm looking for any photographs that anyone might have of Dad or Mums work.  I'm also interested in hearing from anyone that might have pieces they want to sell.  Dad did a lot of dinnerware, mostly in browns, blues and greens, but he also did vases, storage jars, casseroles, pot planters, and numerous other things. A lot of things had decorative writing on them in Old English style.  He signed some things Anton Pottery, AP, Anton, sometimes a gold sticker and sometimes nothing at all (usually when he was really busy!).  They sold their stuff all over NZ in shops so pieces could be anywhere.  Mum also did a lot of knick-knacky kind of stuff, usually involving mushrooms, frogs, mice, boots.
Would love to hear from anyone who can help or give advice Very Happy
Cheers
Jackie

Hi Antonsdaughter
Did your Dad learn to pot in Europe somewhere by any chance?

Hi teaandcoffee

Yes, he worked as a potter all his life, working at Bullers in Milton from when he left school to when we came out here to NZ in 1973 when he got a job at Waimea Potteries.
