E. Roddy and Co of Burslem was a  a short-lived firm operating, according to the books, only  from 1925-28. Their products, however, don't seem to be particularly rare. Their range seems to have been fairly limited: jugs and bowls with an all-over raised decoration, in various glazes, and Toby jugs. Sometimes they used a matt finish, which gave them a more contemporary feel, but I bought this one because I liked the Whielden-style glaze.

Since posting the above, a bit of googling has revealed that Roddy made some rather artier looking ware with these mottled glazes.

Despite the dates usually given for Roddy Ware, Ernest Roddy is recorded as a tile manufacturer in Newcastle Street, Burslem, as late as 1937, and I wonder if he carried on a sideline in the decorative jugs; the plain matt glazes look rather more 1930s than 1920s.

A lot going on, on this little jug, patches of intense copper lustre, hard to capture.

That is a Very Fancy ER signature. Possibly something to do with some Royal Anniversary or such like?

It is Roddy ware.
I had a feeling I had seen the body before, it did seem factory
made, but the decoration threw me, never seen these Art
pottery glazes on Roddy ware before.

There are examples shown here of copper lustre, and also a
hand-written mark with an identical E R.

The potteries.org is convinced the dates of operation
given in Goddens are incorrect:

Post by Leach54321 May 18th 2022, 3:56 pm

This is a 12.25" art pottery charger / wall hanging plate featuring a crest or flag to the centre and with a backstamp to the back that clearly has & Pottery but hard to read the rest - perhaps the longer word is RIDDYor RIDDZ?  Can anyone help me identify this please?

What a coincidence - I've just acquired an identical one in an auction lot in Reading! I managed to find the E Roddy entry on the Potteries website after a bit of trial and error, via some art barn (*ddy) - the cursive script is their art pottery.
