Bellevue Pottery - Rye (Sussex)

Post by denbydump on Sun Mar 08, 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.

Now you should know by now that Potty and I need to see your bottom - we're funny that way!
