Throughout the company's life, Gray's Pottery produced designs which incorporated prints in various forms. This is a common decorative technique in the pottery industry, one that is still in widespread use. In the context of Gray's Pottery, this idea may seem strange because the company used the words hand-painted in its advertising and, in particular, as part of its backstamp. How can hand-painted be associated with a print? The answer is that it can be used in conjunction with a print.
