Praze-an-Beeble, Cornwall

Post by NaomiM on December 8th 2015, 11:34 am

No information as to who ran it, and it no longer seems to be in operation, but it was near other potteries like Crowan, so may be an ex-apprentice?

Yes, it's popped up a few times but I don't know what the posters titled their threads because nothing's coming up on the searches.

I can find various references to a potter called Paul Murray impressing his work with a seal and  "Praze-an-Beeble", eg here:

As so often with these obscure potteries, Google Books throws up a result from a 1975 directory called "Traditional English Country Crafts and How to Enjoy Them Today", which sounds very useful.
