Royal Oak cup with backstamp Empty Who is this mark?

Post  Maryr Thu 19 Dec - 14:33

This jug is almost identical in shape to Royal Oak, but it is marked and it has a much crisper, shinier glaze than anything I have seen in Royal Oak. I have found a sugar bowl, jug, and mug in this ware. Not all of it is marked, but the sugar bowl and jug are.  Any theories anyone?

Ev have a close look sometime at your mug... I felt that the clay body was different from Royal Oak? Sort of grainier.

Aha! I had forgotten about this. My Salisbury source told me that this would have been a mark done by Owen Salisbury. For some time, Owen was in a workshop separate from his sons Edward and Stewart, and during that period Owen did quite a bit of experimental work. Owen obviously decided to put his own mark on these pieces.

Hmmm ok, so do you think it's ok to add this mark to the Royal Oak Gallery, as the shapes that it was put on were the same as Royal Oak? I think so as Mr Salisbury was Royal Oak Very Happy

Yes I think it belongs in the RO gallery, it's a royal oak shape and made by the family.
