Good condition.

The Torquay Pottery at Heel Cross, Devon, commenced production in 1908 by potter Enoch Staddon. They were prolific makers of ‘Motto Ware’, and this design is a delightful example of how atmospheric their painters could be- quickly done, yet very effective in representing a Devon coastal scene at dusk.

The ‘Royal Torquay Pottery’ mark was used from 1924.

The introduction of restrictions during WWII stressed the firm to the point of closure before the war finished, in the early 1940’s.
