Possible slumped Nazeing bowl.
« on: April 14, 2016, 12:58:56 PM »
Of course, it might not be Nazeing but looks to have the right colour and bubbles, so will go with that provenance for the time being.

The colour is one of the 'greens' - possibly a little too turquoise for Sherwood - and certainly at the extreme end of green.        The slightly rough scar under the base, plus the bubble structure and colour are good candidates for Nazeing  -  but it's the shape, produced I assume on a slump mould that makes it unusual.             
Nowhere in the Nazeing book can I find anything of a shape that would suggest the factory were using this method for shaping bowls, and apart from some ashtrays, there is nothing that I can see other than circular rims.

Diameter is a tad under 6 inches (c. 150 mm).

So, a bit confused  -  is this a trial piece or did Nazeing use slump moulds and it's just a case that nothing managed to get into the book  -  or simply nothing to do with Nazeing??                    Age wise I'd have thought somewhere around 1950 - 60.

All thoughts welcome and thanks for looking

Manual shaping I suggest rather than slumping

I take your word for that Christine  -  am sure you know lots more about this type of production than me - thanks for putting me right :)            I can say that when inverted, the six 'points' are very uniform in their position, so I assumed a mechanical method.                 Are you able to suggest how this is created manually?

I'm still of the opinion that it originated with Nazeing, and as such is a shape that appears unrecorded in Timberlake's book.

Hi, i would agree with Nazeing, I have one very similar if not identical, same colour and pontil scar which matches my other Nazeing pieces  :D
