Roddy Ware

Post by hercules brabazon on June 18th 2015, 12:00 pm

E. Roddy and Co of Burslem was a  a short-lived firm operating, according to the books, only  from 1925-28. Their products, however, don't seem to be particularly rare. Their range seems to have been fairly limited: jugs and bowls with an all-over raised decoration, in various glazes, and Toby jugs. Sometimes they used a matt finish, which gave them a more contemporary feel, but I bought this one because I liked the Whielden-style glaze.

Since posting the above, a bit of googling has revealed that Roddy made some rather artier looking ware with these mottled glazes.

Despite the dates usually given for Roddy Ware, Ernest Roddy is recorded as a tile manufacturer in Newcastle Street, Burslem, as late as 1937, and I wonder if he carried on a sideline in the decorative jugs; the plain matt glazes look rather more 1930s than 1920s.
