Ginger Jar Picture

Post  truk10 on Wed Jul 23, 2008 8:32 am

Hi

I'm afraid I'm not a Ruskin expert -just come across a bit of it in my searches for Keith Murray (now there's something I could drone on about) and know someone who's a bit of a collector. Anyway, I did a bit of a rummage through old Christie's catalogues and have found an image of a Ruskin Ginger Jar with the lid.

This image (sorry it's so poor, the scanner is not "on message" at the moment) is from a 1998 catalogue and has a guide price £300 - £500. Not sure how strong the Ruskin market is but it's probably pretty safe to assume you can't buy it cheaper now than you could 10 years ago.

All the best

The dish that looks like Poole may well be by Radford - they did a range that was very similar to (copied) Poole back in the 1920s/30s. I can't find a picture of another example but here's something similar to show you how closely they copied Poole.

very cool Ruskin information thanks truk10 ... cloudnine

I've found out the other maker ...a bit hard to decipher but its Honiton Pottery.

I've never heard of it before ...but I guess another Poole copier ...as I picked up the pot thinking it was Poole ...very similar design.

How can you put..."new" ..."big" and "opshop" in the same sentence and not tell us where it is? lol!

Hi spot 20
Thanks for looking at our site. The Carstens logo is two houses joined together with a C usually made of red clay and have form numbers. I have not seen a piece like this before. A picture of the base would be handy for identification.

Typical Carstens Tönnieshof mark, although not all pieces carry this mark, and some pieces do not carry a form number either, always used reddish clay, exceptions are pieces made in Austria when Carstens ran the Goldscheider factory, and Braemore Carstens pieces made in Australia.
