Could this be Hartley Wood ? ID = Whitefriars
« on: November 17, 2018, 02:53:22 PM »
7 inches tall, polished pontil mark, some wear, I've heard that most have cracked/ rough pontil marks, heavy for its size and if not it didn't cost much so it's ok  ;D

I am by no means an expert, but from the Hartley Wood I've had this one just doesn't look 'wonky' enough and the base looks too well finished. Hopefully someone in the know will be along shortly  8)
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

The colour looks a bit similar to the Whitefriars streaky here doesn't it?
I don't know anything about Whitefriars though so no idea if it might be shape wise or whether the streaky effect is right/cased etc.
Presuming both these are correctly id'd.

Height very close too.

Would echo Della, definitely not wonky enough. I would expect Hartley Wood to have a snapped off pontil mark, often see a slightly pushed up base too. This one was jagged enough to slice a finger.
