ID Please Trentham Art Ware Jug

Post by mal on February 9th 2014, 5:35 pm

This three footed jug is stamped Trentham Art Ware. Is this Beswick?  Pattern number 424.  22 cms tall. Any idea of date?  Thank you.

So Devonshire Potteries as with the vase but these pieces do look a bit "old fashioned" for the date. I wonder if the company used pre-War moulds bought from the Potteries when companies closed?
Just a thought and I have no evidence to back it up.

I can see why you'd b confused. Found this under Beswick

Beswick also made a range of Deco shapes called Trentham Art Ware for a retailer in Nottingham from 1934 to 41 and stamped them accordingly. When the contract finished Beswick continued making some of the shapes, but without the Trentham mark.

Tbh, these two pieces of Trentham Art Ware do look Art Deco, and more like Beswick than 1959 onwards.

I think we need a Beswick Trentham Art Ware stamp for comparison to be sure.

Thank you. I think they're lovely. I do agree VERY "old fashioned" though.

I've sent you a link to a pot attributed to Beswick but marked Trenthan Art Ware, and has this stamp. I'd say both pieces are Beswick.

I have a Trentham art pottery cat and it's very different.

I have found the reference that you mention Naomi and I would expect the people responsible for that ought to know more about Beswick than me. Therefore that seems likely as the jug, especially, looks 1930s.

The Nottingham suggestion does seem a bit "neat" though as the river running through Nottingham is the Trent but Trentham itself is about 4 miles from Longton where the Beswick factory was. Maybe?

Yup! I'd say that's definitely it! Beswick it is then! Thank you both.  Clap Happy
