Selected works from

the Collection of the Late

Dr George and Mrs Ann Geroe

Ann Geroe (1934-2015) was born in Wales and migrated to

Melbourne with her mother after World War II. In the early 1970s,

while doing a double major in philosophy at Melbourne University

as a mature age student, she attended pottery classes run

by Barry Singleton. Already interested in Chinese ceramics,

particularly the pots of the Southern Song Dynasty, the Kang

Hsi reign of the Ching Dynasty and the Ching monochrome

reproductions of the 19th century, she set out to recreate

their celadon, copper red and imperial yellow glazes on simple

monochrome forms. She started practicing professionally as a

potter in 1979, working from a home studio in Castlemaine. Some

of her work is carved or pierced and she also made stoneware

tableware for a time. In 1987, she travelled overseas, holding

a one-person show at the Matsuzakaya Department Store,

Yokohama, and going on to visit ceramic collections in Beijing,

Taipei, Shanghai, London and Oxford. She continued to work into

the 2000s but gave up potting in around 2004 after a fall in her

studio. In 2014, a survey exhibition of her work was held at the

Castlemaine Art Gallery to coincide with her 80th birthday. Her

work is held in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria.

A sterling silver 'Duty Dodger'

octagonal bullet teapot by Thomas

Farren, London, 1728

13cm high,

total weight of silver 515gms

NOTE

the term 'Duty Dodger' refers to a silver

item with transposed silver marks. The

marks are soldered on from a smaller

taxed object so that the silversmith

could avoid paying the full amount

of tax to the Hall. This is indicated

by the lack of a makers mark to the

base of the teapot, and a set of marks

punched too close to the hinge of the

lid, suggesting they were punched

before the hinge was attached,

rather than after by the assay office.

Duty dodgers are in violation of the

Hallmarking Act of 1973, and therefore

cannot be sold in the UK without the

marks being crossed out.
