Pottery Marks

Most pieces of Farnham Pottery have no mark. Later pieces may have impressed marks, and earlier ones may have incised marks.

Other than the marks shown below, there are also a large variety of different incised initials, names and monograms, which are mainly seen on sgraffito pieces.

Harris Mark This impressed mark was still in use in the 1990s. It had been used for many years.
Harris and Sons Mark The A. Harris and Sons impressed mark has been seen on terracotta garden wares. The mark was introduced in the early 1990s.
Incised X Mark Incised X marks appear mainly on items in a blue glaze. Almost half of the blue items in our collection have this mark.
X Mark This impressed mark is on a small blue owl jug. It is almost almost an X.
Incised letters - Green. This appears mainly on sgraffito pieces. A vase in the Allen Gallery with this mark is known to have been made in 1929.
Incised Yellow Mark Incised letters Yellow. This appears mainly on sgraffito pieces.
Incised letters - Blue This has been seen on a blue sgraffito items.

Ada Hazell Mark
Ada Hazell Trade Mark
The top image shows the incised mark used by Ada Kate Hazell on an actual piece of pottery and contains a representation of three hazel-nuts, along with the Trade Mark registration number. FSP stands for Farnham Sgraffito Pottery.

The bottom image shows the registered mark from the original Trade Mark volume, which is housed at the Public Record Office (PRO), Kew (Ref: BT82/629). The mark was registered in October 1897, and is numbered 208222.

PLEASE NOTE: Many pieces of greenware have an impressed Owl mark on the base. These have mistakenly been identified as Farnham Pottery pieces, and are now known to be Belgian.
