it's rare that I find a piece of Guernsey pottery with this lovely glaze,I assume it was used for a short period only

A fiver?
Far too generous. First offer at a Boot Sale would be 1. 50p for smaller bits!
Guernsey stuff is really very nicely done.and highly decorative.But it belongs in that realm of holidays souvenir Knick Knacks from the 50's and 60's that nobody ever wants nowadays.
Similar with the Jo Lester et al Isle of Wight pieces from the same era.Beautiful little pieces,mostly superbly painted,but you would really struggle to sell for anything more than a fiver.
There is obviously a feeding chain in this sort of stuff. Tat for the post-war tourists.Topped by Troika. Laughter
I suppose its a market that was mainly destroyed by Mass Air travel.Still.at least people did not spend fortunes in lugging back Lladro which is now worth not too much!

What surprises me is the similarity in designs and glazes between Guernsey and Chelsea Pottery. I know they had an eclectic mix of artists at Chelsea, and I've often wondered if any moved on to Guernsey?

I suspect the similarity is down to the commercial nature of what sells.Both Guernsey and Chelsea would have sold in exactly the same market,the specialist gift shop,to a similar clientele. Cats,flowers,Owls, etc in a certain colour palette were obviously good sellers which were obviously repeated in quantity.
Compare with say Highland Pottery ,where the market is slightly different,cos they are more pricey. More high end department stores like John Lewis etc. So the design palette is somewhat different.

This post looks like a good example of "buying by name" as per the other thread Excellent I agree that 50's and 60's "souvenir pottery" is not that popular at the moment, but I believe it is highly underrated and undervalued, but I'm sure collectors will start taking an interest at some point. The quality of the pottery's you mention is far beyond most of the highly collected factory produced ceramics. I expect a lot of Leach Pottery was also sold as souvenir's for it's era Big Laughter

Interestingly I have a cabinet with Isle of Wight pottery and a cabinet with studio pottery, I always show both collections to our visitors and so far people have almost always taken more interest in the IoW pottery overall. Big Laughter

I'm sure there must be a link somewhere between the two.

There must be, mustn't There. I don't think it's simply down to selling in the same markets because glaze choice and design are so personal. I wouldn't pick up a Jo Lester and confuse it with Guernsey, and yet I'm often picking up Gurensey thinking it's Chelsea and vice versa.

The other one it's similar to is Wellhouse pottery Paignton, Devon. The Guernsey cat dish I picked up at Woking recently I thought was Wellhouse. The dealer had id-ed it as Guernsey despite it not having a mark, and he's a fellow collector so I've no reason to doubt him, but...

I have doubts about your cat dish being Guernsey too Excellent Does he specifically collect Guernsey pottery? As most dealers at fairs seem to just write names on stickers to help sell their unknown pots... Laughter

It's a very nice design though, I'd have been very tempted myself Happy
