F is for Farnham Pottery

F is for Farnham Pottery.

Produced domestic and functional pottery. Also known as the Harris Pottery as it was owned by Absalom Harris. Some fine sgcrafito wares were produced some in association with the Farnham School of Art. Easiest to recognise are the Owl jugs and bowl which were their signatures designs.

Variously marked sometimes clear with impressed stamp,  mainly vaguely with incised cross at best. Typically green or blue glazed.
