I have a Nazeing lattice bowl with a polished pontil mark. I also have a 'Nazeing for Elwell I believe (I think Nigel confirmed that as a possible :-\)' bowl that is swirly and doesn't have a polished pontil mark.   Both are different decors to these pieces under discussion though. Perhaps these were made by Nazeing but of a different period and perhaps for Elwell?
Sorry I should not have got involved in this thread at all - I find this whole Nazeing thing very difficult to get a handle on. But I do think it is possible Chris's bowl, my mushroom posy and my green powder pot are all by the same maker... whoever that might be  :)

I'd imagine that 'lattice' is probably the least difficult Nazeing pattern - nothing else quite like it, and very distinctive.   Otherwise the colour groupings are in groups headed:......... green, blue, lilacs and purples, yellows and browns, orange, shades of pink, white and variations on black and white.    So quite a palette range.

m - in Geoff. Timberlake's book there is an Elwell label on a bowl which was apparently not made by Nazeing.    The caption suggests that the piece is believed to have been made by Haden Mullet Haden of Stourbridge during the 1930's.      The bowl in question uses flakes of colour for decoration, and the shape is not one produced by Nazeing.

Well, well, well, here I am John boy!!  ;) :)


Surely the bowl has to be cased in order for it to support the enamels that are swirled and bubbled?? Thin at the rim edge, but thick(ish) at the base.

I do not have any of this 'Nazeing for Elwell' to hand at the moment in order to check - but that is exactly what this yellow bowl is. See explanation on previous thread(s).

Pre-war pale green is called 'May Green' by Nazeing, but not post-war, etc.

The pink vase on my site is post- war and not pre-war as mentioned above, and it does have a fold over rim.

Hope that helps :)

Nigel

Chris - we've all done it, don't worry ;)

m - yes, they appear to be the same, but the turquoise piece is missing its lid, which would have been chrome with a plastic knob handle :)

Thank you Nigel  :)  I do have the lid as well  but I display it without though.
