BRAND NEW UNREAD BOOK Published in 1993, this 6"x 9" book runs to 88 pages, with 34 colour plates and 61 more in black and white. There are also a number of line drawings and illustrations of the marks which appear on the base of the pots. The volume is based on original research by Reginald Score and gives a fascinating insight into the history of the Dartmouth Pottery and its products.
This pottery was one of the youngest of the Torquay potteries, being founded in 1948. To many people 'Dartmouth Pottery' means mottoware, gurgling jugs and monochrome flower holders. Yet their products were infinitely more diverse, ranging from beautiful art pottery to finely moulded toby jugs and sporting tankards. More recently, the company's moulded wares included money boxes and models in the form of animals and birds. These can be found at antique fairs and flea markets and make an interesting area of collecting at 'affordable' prices.
