Sibley - Wareham

Post by bistoboy on March 22nd 2014, 10:15 pm







Bought today, a bowl by the Sibley pottery from Wareham, Dorset.  There seems to be some confusion about when they were in operation: one website i found (http://www.pmmmg.org/Potteries.htm) says they closed in 1939, no doubt because of ww2, but the studiopottery.com website says they ended in 1962.  Not sure of the facts.

I do recall having a Uranium Orange Sibley bowl years ago with the incised mark.

The original Sibley pottery was founded by Rachel Bennett in 1920. As well as the glaze colours mentioned (blue/green; orange) they had a black glaze. Lawrence of Arabia ordered a teaset from them in black and it is apparently still on display at Clouds Hill. The pottery closed in 1939 and the buildings were requisitioned by the army.

From 1945 Branksome China leased the pottery until 1959.
