No Honiton and Crown Devon are not the same. Can't help you with your bowl but it looks very 50s/60s

Kev, for your information Honiton is a small town in Devon (England) most famous for lace-making. They have great clay seams in Devon and so this is the reason so many potteries are based in the locale. Click the link below for some info on Honiton Pottery.

Hi, I live quite near Honiton but know nothing about the pottery (shame on me) but JH3 is not a postcode, Honiton is EX, I see lots Honiton pottery about, mainly cups and saucers etc

Hi there. Don't know if this 'thread' is still active but I can tell you that the most notable Honiton pottery was set up in the early 1900s (1918 I think) by Charles Collard who had previously owned the Crown Dorset pottery in Poole (not Crown Devon). Collard sold the pottery in 1947 but, in general, his wares were decorated white slipwares, not the heavier brown pieces shown above. Collard sold out to Norman Hull and Harry Barrett who, in turn, sold the company to Dartmouth Pottery in 1997. It's possible that the piece was produced by Hull & Barrett but I have no details of their pots at all. Sorry.

Tiffo this thread is so sad Waaah and neglected that I dug out some bit I bought about 10 years ago when I started collecting. The strong colour in the Honiton Collard range reminded me of early Poole / CSA / Carter etc. I was fascinated with the ashtray as it seems to me to show a link to H.Carter and the popularity of Egyptian design. There is also a cold cream(?) lidded pot and  another piece of Honiton marked Honiton England, not COLLARD HONITON ENGLAND as the other two.

We would appreciate more items Happy

P.S. Potty have you go a base photo for the one above?

Very Clarice like!
The Collard period I believe was the 20s/30s,
Pieces marked, "Honiton england" are earlier.
I'll have to dig a few bits out.

some info on Collard.

The ashtray and the pot have versions of the Stuart pattern. This was named after Vera Stuart, the decorator who specialised in it. There were two versions of the Collard Honiton England mark. This looks to be the larger one used 1935 - 1947, and I think the clay is right for that period too.
The vase is the Jacobean pattern. It looks later; if it is white earthenware then the Honiton England mark was used in 1947 - 1949 briefly when the Collards sold the pottery and Honiton Art Potteries was formed.

Not sure it was ever in. I see a fair amount of it up here near London for some reason. Prices for its age and quality are very very low. The collard stuff (20's/30's) to me it is like a washed out version Poole of the same period. Pale and muted but with the same circus tent designs you see on the Carter Stabler Adams Poole items. It even uses the same red clay and a very similar stamp. Why it is so unloved I have no idea. It could have just slipped through the cracks or a poor period after 1950 could have just turned collectors away. The early stuff is a bargain at todays prices though. Nearly a 100 year old hand painted pottery should not be less expensive than brand new plain white versions from the far east.

I don't sorry and it's probably in a box somewhere... Shock

I think it was Honiton England impressed with a number.
