Myott and Son

Post by Kevinmorgan21 on May 7th 2014, 10:24 pm

Hi, I have a dinner set in the pattern below, I am not 100% sure if its real Myott or a Chinese / Foreign rip off, any confirmation one way or the other would be appreciate.

Unlikely to be a Chinese copy. Myott is not one of the highly collectable potteries like Carlton ware or Clarice Cliff.

It is Myott and I think from the 1950s. I remember seeing it around 25 to 30 years ago.

your plate is indeed 1930's and the 2628F is the pattern number. Myott china was mass produced along with many other manufacturers. I found the pattern on the Replacements website but no pattern name, the earlier patterns never seemed to have a name

Myott and Son

Post by mumof1 on March 8th 2015, 9:15 am


I inherited this from my Grandmother, who was born in England in 1900

The pattern is quite intricate - called Brooklyn by the look

Despite searching the web for several hours, I cannot find this mark anywhere Shrugs  Please help if you can, Thank you

It's Myott, Son & Co who were based at various sites in the Potteries and the mark dates from 1900. It seems to have been used amongst others until the late 1920s.  Brooklyn is the pattern name.

Sorry if this is off topic, just wondered.

I had a trio in this pattern on watch the other day in ebay so recognised it and went to have a look. What about pattern 1206? (Green version, search for art deco myott 1206 in completed listings) It seems identical, can identical patterns have different pattern numbers?

Hi Emma, I think you are talking about the green and gold/grey trio with the decoration as the grey/red & gold plate above.

Using a different colour way would mean a different pattern number and it is the reason why I think the red/grey decorated plate is 1950s, as the pattern number is higher than the one on the Art Deco trio you refer to.

hi, i dont understand why a different colour of the same pattern would change the pattern number, not everyone does that, anyway, thank you for explaining

Pattern numbers are not for the customer but for the factory and wholesalers benefit. Much easier to give a specific number that tells the factory the pattern plus colours rather than having to state a pattern name and the colours required. That is of course when you have a completely painted pattern like the ones we are talking about.

For transfer patterns such as Brooklyn above there is no need to specify colours, as it is almost entirely from a pre-prepared transfer. There are minimal gold additions, hence the paintress' gold painted mark on the back for factory quality control purposes.
