Notes

The majority of the pots recorded have been in North America and Australia, 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 pot top right in the first image is a framed pot lid, an item which follows a 19th century tradition of cylindrical pots with decorated lids often containing medicinal ointments. Gray’s produced just the lids, for decorative purposes – often there are two holes on the back through which to tie a hanging string.

The small jug in the last 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.
