Harwyn Pottery

Post  Console on Tue 1 Mar - 17:57

I have this vase that is similar to Salisbury ware but has the Harwyn Pottery sticker on the base. Can anyone tell me about it? I'm having trouble posting a photo, so have made it my avatar, for now.

This is interesting. I always thought Harwyn painted flowers on glazed CL vases but it appears from this example that they also decorated unglazed blanks.

Console, could you please sent a photo of that Harwyn vase to the site on newzealandpottery@gmail.com and I will post it for you, as it is a bit hard to see in the tiny avatar format. Thanks Ev.

Thank you for sending your photo Console as it is extremely interesting having been painted on top of a Salisbury decorated Shape 3 Vase and has a Harwyn sticker on the base.  This will be from the 1940's and I'm pleased that Val picked up on it, as I didn't see your edited post.

This is a very unique piece people ... Photo courtesy of Console.

As it has a Harwyn sticker, they may have purchased vases from Salisbury initially and given them a floral flourish and sold them as their own. Maybe going onto Crown Lynn/Ambrico later to get a stronger longer lasting vase that was already glazed?
Hehee that's my thoughts for the day Very Happy
