another unmarked mug by Toby I think

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Mon 21 Mar - 13:34

I'm picking this small mug as another Toby Stafford.

small stoneware mug, 6cm H, unmarked for maker

The shape, handle, and turned foot have all been seen before in Toby's work.
All three together in one piece is very suggestive.

In the montage above top row are all marked as Toby's work but bottom row are not.
Bottom left just my guess, bottom right initially attributed by Marcus.

there were three of these at SPCA but unfortunately the other two were chipped

The attachment of the handle stands out to me because it is most unusual. The way the clay from the top of the strap is pressed down to where the strap finishes is like his personal trademark.
