Aviemore Pottery, Scotland

Post by NaomiM on July 31st 2012, 9:05 pm

I haven't bothered with Aviemore Pottery before, but then I fell in love with this lidded jam pot:







I'm surprised at how little information there is about this pottery online, considering how often items turn up at charity shops and flea markets. Anyone know the designer and the operating dates for the company?

Cheers Happy
Aviemore always has a distinctive wax-resist pattern and limited pastel colour pallet, but every so often they produce a lovely shaped piece and colour combination.

Ha, great minds think alike.

Shocked by a guide price on Millers website of £120-£180 for a <6" Aviemore vase. Usual price for most pieces is <£10.

All the ones I've seen have been stamped, but the stamp can be quite faint.

But the pottery's so distinctive even if it's not stamped you can't mistake it for anything else.

I have seen examples of unmarked Aviemore salt pigs but as Naomi said,it's unlike any other pottery

Hi

A nicely executed little curved lipped bowl. The mark is obscured by glaze but I can read the word Pottery on it.

Why is Aviemore not more popular? They produced many attractive items with very pretty glaze effects,and they are so distinctive you can spot a mile off! Moreover,its one of the very few Scottish studio potteries that produced a fair amount of work. Strange are the ways of collecting!

I think that's the problem, there's too much out there, a lot of it the same pattern

I always have a look when I see Aviemore at fairs but usually it's the same design or very similar.
The piece I just posted was 30p at my local car boot so I didn't turn it down.
