Bellevue Pottery - Rye (Sussex)

Post by denbydump on March 8th 2015, 2:10 pm

Bellevue pottery Rye was in production from 1869-1939. Mostly known for it's rustic wares with sprigging.
Hops seem to be the most common, as shown here, but oak leaves, roses, shells, smakes, butterflies and
bunches of grapes were also used.

"Sussex art ware" planter, 1920-1939.




"Sussex rustic ware" jug, 1880s-1920.




A pair of small candlesticks, unmarked.

The actual pottery became very dilapidated during the Second World War and in 1947 the premises were bought by two brothers, John and Walter Cole, who were born in Plumstead, S. E. London. They renovated the building and the Rye Pottery was born.

Majolica pierced fern vase - Bellevue Pottery, Rye

Post by NaomiM on September 4th 2016, 2:15 am

Picked this up but couldn't decide if it was Castle Hedingham, Belgium, or Bulgarian or something else entirely, so I left it. Unmarked.
It's a double walled vase - there's  a central tube to hold the water, while the outer wall is pierced

I can see why you think it is Castle Hedingham. I have had a few items of Binghams work and all have been marked apart from some cups. But I think his glazes are a bit drier than this item, yours looks a bit shiny compared with what I have seem. I don't think its foreign though. I think its probably early Rye. Right colours, glaze and they didn't mark. Take a look and see what you think.

It could well be Bellvue Rye.

The incised mark is often difficult to see under the glaze.

I've taken some more photos. Closest I can find is Victorian majolica in the style of George Jones

George Jones would be white earthenware. Still 99% certain it's Rye, and a good bit.
