Started as the Tor Vale pottery c1910. It was taken over by 1914 by Tom Lemon and Harry Crute.
Tom Lemon left in 1926 to set up Wesuma Pottery (qv). Harry Crute renamed it Daison art pottery,
and it continued until 1931.
Many wares are unmarked, so dating is difficult, but the style is quite distinctive.

A small motto cream jug with the typical streaky purple background, unmarked.
