Thomas Turner of Caughley
by: Susannah

Thanks very much for putting up the page! I have since discovered this is a porcelain vase, circa 1790-1850. I have found one of the marks; it is Caughley. Thomas Turner of Caughley would make vases and them ship the down the river to Chamberlain at Worcester, who would paint them. The crescent with a dot is a painter's mark. I still don't know about the axe or the 5 that coud be a C with a triangle on top.

If your information is correct this vase is valuable. Help is at hand to confirm maker and value on this value antique china page.

Other references on Thomas Turner on this site:

Thomas Turner ran the Caughley Works for Squire John Brown after John Rose left to form Coalport

Additional Notes:-

Caughley (1775-1799)

The Caughley factory founded near Broseley in Shropshire by Ambrose Gallimore and Thomas Turner. Turner was an ex-Worcester man.

Caughley was heavily influenced by Worcester shapes and patterns but also developed a French style of decoration.

Some mark details:-

* The impressed word "salopian" meaning 'from Salop, another word for the county of Shropshire'

* A capital S which sometimes has a small x or o beside it.

* A capital C with a serif (if not clear, can be confused with the hatched crescent of Worcester)

Makers and Painters marks

Does anyone know about a mark under glaze that is an axe or could be a seven? The crescent with a dot on this vase is a painter's mark...could be Chamberain?

Crescent mark

Almost certainly a late 1800s George Jones, Staffordshire mark, using their post 1873 impressed Crescent China logo:
