The pattern is "Sandringham" (this is what the C1 bit means).

Likey to be later production, but someone else on here would likely know more date wise than me guessing!  Laughter

I think early 20th Century because of the stamped Allervale mark. In earlier pieces it was handwritten.

Sweet little thing. The Torquay collectors society have a wealth of information about Aller vale and the other companies from the area. A quick google will get you a link and all you could ever need about them.

Thanks everyone. I can't believe it's age!... and it is a lovely little pot.
I've contacted the Torquay Collectors Society (thanks for that info) they have a section for people who are looking out for certain items, so I've sent photos and offered it to the collectors. Fingers crossed it'll find a worthy home.

Aller Vale Pottery, Torquay (Devon) - Page 2 Empty Moulded white clay jug, Torquay scroll pattern - Aller Vale

Post by hercules brabazon September 19th 2019, 10:03 am

Moulded jug, just over 11cm tall. Made of white clay, decorated with a multicoloured scroll pattern in trailed slip. Glazed base, with illegible incised mark.  Would I be right in thinking this is an earlyish example of Aller Vale slipware? The brown splodges on the base are definitely over the pale body.

A fair bit of the early Aller vale in white clay was unmarked in my experience.

I'm pretty sure there is an incised mark (lower edge of the 4th photo), too long to be a pattern number, but it's even less clear in real life.

If you use your imagination it could say aller.
The white clay and the thick glaze on the base is a giveaway.

A recent example

Just adding my piece of Aller Vale motto ware here for anyone to admire!
I got this a few weeks ago.. it caught my eye in a charity shop and I liked it.. paid under £2 for it.. knew nothing about Aller Vale until I got home and looked into it.
I am going to keep my eye out for more now as ive seen lots of nice pieces while researching! Beating Heart

Hi

Aller Vale piece - I've been trying to figure out what the handwritten mark, found some good resource websites but no conclusion yet. Any ideas?

Thank you.

Can't make out the word at all, but I think this is from the "Normandy" range.
