I is for Isle of Wight

I is for the Isle of Wight pottery established at the Carisbroke brick works by Samuel Saunders of the seaplane fame. Very well potted ware with fine high gloss and matt glazes, some decorated but predominately blue glazed.

Connection with Upchurch Pottery through the master potter Edward Baker - very similar handles. Impressed SES mark on earlier items, printed mark on later items.
