Motto Ware Cream And Sugar Jazz Variant Mottoware Torquay 1910-1920s Longpark

Longpark, Devon

  • $ 2800

This is a great vintage sugar and cream set that is Motto Ware, but a little bit different in terms of the color palette.

The art deco design is made of red clay like the usual Mottoware, but has leaf motifs instead of the traditional cottage in a variant of the Jazz pattern, a blue glaze and a sgraffito motto for an art deco twist on a traditional style.

Motto Ware history: This famous and fun pottery has been manufactured in the south of England from the 1870s until the factories closed in the 1960s. It is usually of red clay decorated with bright glazes, cottages and mottos or sayings that run the gamut from proverbs and sound advice to nearly outrageous. Always fun and different and very collectible!
