A fern pot, with the often used diving Kingfisher, but with a more unusual garland
around the rim.

Shape 87 - which seems to be some kind of  miniature coffee pot - with the N2 "coloured cockerel" pattern. The other side inscribed with a quote from Burns: " facts are chiels that winna ding/An downa be disputed ".

Scottish motto ware, always rarer and more desirable.

These Torquay factories had a huge variety of quality. Longpark had some high points from what I have seen but never matched up to the very best early stuff of Watcombe or Aller Vale. The tea pot I have seen a million times with various designs most often by CH Brannam over in Barnstable. The flower vase is part of a range I have seen propping up stalls at many antique fairs, I guess it is very early. It can only be described as various reflections of brown and the kindest thing I can say about that range is that it is WAY out of fashion.

Not as early as I thought, when I got my own example, it's c1914-1930.

Strange? I thought that hand written signature style mark was from the very earliest period (1904 onwards). That has jogged a memory though. There is a range of Longpark from that period that has very complex designs that are applied with single dots of coloured clay that come together to produce designs of flowers and I think birds. It also shares this signature mark rather than an imprinted stamp mark. These designs appear very arts and crafts / art nouveau. They are very good, rare and go for very good money when they appear on the internet. I guess they are the work of one worker? But I am not sure. If I can find a picture of one I will post for reference.

Small beaker printed with a picture of Winchester Cathedral and crudely overpainted. Possibly not Longpark's finest hour.

They've probably been hiding themselves away out of embarrassment...

D&E Lloyd Thomas's book "The Old Torquay Potteries" indicates that this kind of decoration was in use at Longpark in around 1905-10, and also sometimes appeared on wares produced there to be sold under the "Tormohun" brand.

A couple of nicely decorated wall-plates. The earliest Longpark terracotta.
This "China obscured" mark was used 1883-c1895.
Maybe someone informed them that Terracotta is not china!
