    A bit of Australian pottery that I found at the Salvo's about six months ago. Definitely kitsch. Of the post war period. A design that was used at another related Sydney factory called Diana. I have an idea of who was the designer but cannot prove it ... a talented man called Ken Day who I believe worked for both factories and others as well.

    "Albaware 1948 - 1968. From: Encyclopaedia Of Australian Potter's Marks 2nd Edition by Geoff Ford. In 1948 Ian Lowe established a pottery in Marrickville, Sydney, where he produced a variety of slip cast vases, pots, bowls, animals,etc. Some were marked: Impressed Albaware 1948 -1968. Hand Made Albaware Pottery silver on black paper label 1948 - 1951."

    The Albaware address was 25 Sloane St Marrickville and the factory's name probably named after Ian Catterall Lowe's sister : Alba Gweneth Lowe.

    Love the colour of that glaze !!!!

      Hi VALENTINO !!! It is a trough vase .... a post war thing I suppose. It's Sunday morning here in mid-winter .... not a cloud in the sky, 57 degrees C on a Sunday morning. Today is City to Surf marathon day in Sydney and they have a fabulous day for it. I'm on the couch.
