Product description

Fosters Pottery (Cornwall) retro vintage blue mug and brown dolphin-shaped dish
 
Two appealing pieces of vintage / retro Cornish ceramics from Fosters Pottery (exact age uncertain but dating from the second half of the 20th century), as follows:
 
(a) A mug, finished in finely-textured blue satin glaze with incised vertical wavy lines to the exterior, and off-white shiny glaze to the interior and rim, measuring approximately 10.2cm (4in) tall and 8cm (3.15in) in diameter at the top. The original "FOSTER'S STUDIO POTTERY / MADE IN THE WEST COUNTRY" black and gold paper label is still attached to the exterior, whilst the base bears a black printed "FOSTER'S STUDIO POTTERY CO. / MADE IN CORNWALL" stamp. The off-white glazed areas are crazed throughout, and there are some imperfections including a smallish defect in the glaze at the base of the interior and some slight underglaze blue marks in the off-white areas; the mug itself is otherwise in good condition apart from slight marking to the unglazed foot, although the label is worn and marked.
 
(b) A dolphin-shaped dish, measuring approximately 22.9cm (9in) across and 2cm (0.8in) deep, in shiny dark brown glaze (mottled dark brown and off-white to the upper surface, plain dark brown to the underside); the base is impressed with the words "FOSTERS POTTERY / ENGLAND / CORNWALL" in large capitals. Apart from slight scratching / abrasion to the surface and marking to the unglazed foot, it remains in very good condition; there is some slight roughness - dating from manufacture - to the edges, together with very slight irregularities in the glazed surface.
