Hartleys (Hartrox) Yorkshire

Post by fuzzyedges on June 6th 2011, 4:55 pm





Hartley pottery was made on the bonnie banks of the river Calder at Castleford and there was several marks all bearing the name Hartox except when Desmond Cooper came by and bought, then †Dee Cee was stamped on the bottom as he did with other potteries he bought from
This type of pottery was made from 1950 until the Hartleys Phillips pottery, to give it its full title, closed in1960
The one marked AD was decorated by Ann Dunn not all decorators signed all there pieces
I have no idea what pb3 is other than a guess that it is a mark for this shape as for F3 ???
I had other pieces but people offered me more money for them than I had paid for them so off they went but i still keep an eye out for these gaily decorated pots

Just to add to the above
I believe the range was called peasant
It would appear that the pb3 stands for polyanthus bowl style 3
The company was essentially a brick maker with a pottery attached
As far as I can ascertain the pottery employed about 150 people

Even better to put Hartox in the search box at the top right of this page and there is some information there.

Tap in Hartleys rather than hartrox
Hartrox was a trade mark where the actual pottery was hartleys

Have this lovely painted jug and know about Dee Cee being the importer and also about the Individual Pottery mark but would love to know who actually decorated it and is there any reference book for this? Thanks.

If anyone is going to know it is "Fuzzyedges", who was responsible for the information in the link above. I would try PM'ing him (The Private Message icon is under his avatar to the right of his posts).

Hi there
I will answer on here rather than a PM then its open to everyone interested
It is actually DH which are the intials of Doreen Hartley

As far as I am aware the referance book by David Wilders is out of print
It was printed by Castleford print so really only of local interest
You could search for ISBN 0-9543689-0-8

It does seem to crop up in the most unexpected places I bought a jug the other day in a village not far from Holmefirth and another last year in Dorset so its well traveled

Not Denby and the decoration reminds me of Hartleys (Hartox) Pottery.

There is a thread on the Forum for that pottery but you will see that it usually has ink stamps on the base and I don't recall anything impressed. So could be Hartley but can't be sure.

The decorative style reminds me somewhat of Priddoes Pottery.which operated in Paignton circa 1960-72.Their pieces come up on Ebay occasionally.

I do agree philpot that the decoration does look like Priddoes but their pots seemed to be in red earthenware from what I can see.

I think that Hartley's of Castleford in Yorkshire used "Hartrox" as the trade name on their decorative wares from 1953 until they closed in 1960.

If it is in referance to the mark
Yes its from the hartleys pottery 53 to 60 I think 1989 might be a typo
Common mark (although they did quite a few diffrent handwritten marks)
Two other marks similar
They did the same mark but included the word vitrified in blue just above England on the whiteware commemerative tyke mug
and the same again but impressed on the whiteware drinking beaker

Just a little extra the word individual was written on some pots this indicated that this design was never repeated To a collector that might just be important
