Many of the pots recorded for pattern A8442 have been in the USA, 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 second 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.

The two pots in the last image are a lidded preserve pot put in a two-handled hexagonal dish, probably of pattern A8252.

A pattern sold by the London retailer Heal & Son.
