Notes

Many of the pots recorded for this pattern have been in North America, undoubtedly a reflection of the influence of the British government’s introduction of regulations concerning decorated pottery during the Second World War: the manufacture of decorated pots for the Home market was largely forbidden in order to encourage and develop export sales.

The small jug in the third image was known as a ‘Castle’ jug at Gray’s Pottery: see the website section Retailers, North America – USA, Skinners for more information on these jugs.

At least one pot of this pattern has been recorded with an early Clipper (Hanley) backstamp – either reference N0 or N1 (see the Backstamps section), marks typically in use between 1931 and 1933. The only logical explanation is that there was a shortage of the later Clipper (Stoke-on-Trent) backstamp: perhaps there was an interruption of supplies during the restrictive conditions imposed by the Second World War.
