Asking for a friend. Any information about this pottery? Can't find anything online.

In 1923 Crown Art Pottery of Ilminster in Somerset that was started around 1917 by Charles Collard (between him being in Poole and moving to Honiton) amalgamated with C & A Arlidge's Donyatt Pottery to form Somerset Art Pottery Co. Ltd. Then probably due to financial difficulties Gus Arlidge, who was MD, was replaced by A. Beck and the firm was reorganised as Somerset Art Pottery (1925) Ltd. and moved to Cheddar. Later Donyatt Pottery Ltd. became a separate entity.

The pottery was active in 1931 but I don't know how long for after that.
