Salisbury Ware using Jovan Rancich blank

Post  oakpot on Mon 14 May - 17:09

Salisbury Ware hand thrown No 25.

There is now 3 different shapes with the number 25 on the base in the Jovan Rancich-Wally Silva Gallery.
Numbers 25,20,16 in the galley are Jovan vases only, sold in the early 1940s.

Thanks so much oakpot, we are floundering with these pots that have stamped numbers and are putting them all into the Ranich/Silva Gallery until we can find out more information. Having one with a Salisbury sticker is an added bonus Very Happy

The interesting thing is seeing the different shapes with the same number.
Do you have any suggestions as to who made the other shapes?

My thoughts are that both potters were entrepreneurs, and maybe they did not keep a record of their shapes.There is bound to be a double up using numbers.After a day working on a potters wheel,stamping bases would be a tedious task.

Extract from Owen Salisburys notes,  "Mr Rancich worked so hard.He had a coal fired bottle kiln,he used to sleep alongside it on a camp stretcher to keep it fired through the night."

Jovan Rancich (1888---1942)
Below a blue glazed vase with his name on the base.
