Mystery potter #52: House on stilts

Colander Colander
Colander Collander. Mark

David and I have been doing our best not to buy any pottery over the last month so that our books will balance at the end of the financial year. Luckily, we can always explore what we have packed away in the container to get a fix.  This well-made stoneware colander with dark red and black glaze came out of a box I had opened to photograph some Klytie Pates for the online shop. The mark on the base is an impressed house on stilts. I haven’t seen any other work in this style, but I imagine the colander would have been part of a full production line.
