Black with white spiral yellow interior mark 56/43 - Babbacombe Pottery

Hi

A 6.75 inches tall torpedo shapped earthenware vase. Black gloss glaze with trailing white ribbon exterior and mustard yello gloss glaze interior. The only mark is the number code 56/43 on base. A very tactile and pleasing piece.

I think it's by one of the Torquay Watcome potteries. c.1930s.

It is a vase from the Royal Aller Vale & Watcombe Pottery Co., as Naomi suggests, but from the late 1950s.

It should have a black ink stamp that was either missed off by mistake or faded over the years.

Can I take that back?

Lindylou is correct - They are Babbacombe Pottery with the first number being the date and the last one the shape.

The pot I was looking at only showed the combe and I jumped to the wrong conclusion.

They were made in Torquay though.  Embarrassed
