From the book, the highest pattern numbers attributed to Susie Cooper at Gray's
were around 8600, so this is a little later.

You can make out the understamp "Pareek", which I think was Johnson Bros,
who actually made the blank pottery, bought in by Gray's.

I came across this post and thought you might like to see the set I bought last year. Quite a few pieces missing and a couple of bits of damage but I couldn't resist the strong colours.

Hi Curiosityseeker thank you for your post, your sugar bowl and milk jug are the same as mine or should I say my milk jug was until it got broken Waaah in fact, the set is like mine the cups are coffee cups so different and the stamp is different but possibly they are similar dates.

An old Aunt gave me this set when I was engaged to be married in 1969 so I have had it for quite some time, I think she had put it aside for her "bottom drawer" as we used to say years ago, but she sadly never got married.

I am giving it to my daughter so I just thought I would try to find out a little about it for her.

Yes, these pottery sets are beautifully coloured.

Obvious Susie connection with Grays but not a pattern I've seen before on a pot that I haven't associated with Grays or Cooper in the past. The "J.R. Dec 1935" thing is also a mystery, so all-in-all I'm non-plussed, as they say in old books.
It holds a good amount of beer and is a pleasing weight so I might investigate this particular property a bit (lot) further

I believe decorators in various factories we’re allowed to decorate blanks for special and personal occasions such as weddings and anniversaries. I’m guessing this is one such piece.
It was made after Suzie Cooper had left the company so I’ll split it and merge it with the Gray’s thread
