Honiton Pottery milk jug with Art Deco patterns
Hand-decorated cream jug with brightly-coloured stylised landscape design around the body and blue dashes around the rim.
Honiton pottery shares many similarities with Poole pottery and this may be because the founder Charles Collard had previously owned the Crown Dorset Art Pottery in Poole before moving to Honiton, Devon in 1918 to set up a new pottery. During the 1914 – 18 War, a group of Belgian refugees came to Poole and introduced the Delft, or in-glaze, technique of decorating and this probably influenced the designer/decorators at Carter, Stabler and Adams (the predecessor company of Poole Pottery) as well as Collard, leading both to introduce cream slip glazes with hand painted decoration in bold colours in the 1920s and 1930s.
