Wold Pottery, Yorkshire. Set up by Aidan Dixon in 1954. The first edition of BSPM has his name wrong, but it was corrected in the later ones. From 1954 until 1978 it was at Routh near Beverley, and from 1978-1984 at Hutton le Hole. Since Aidan Dixon's retirement in 1984 the name and some of the designs have been continued by his former assistant Jill Christie, at Harome from 1984-1999, Middlesborough from 2000-2001, and Loftus since 2001.

Jill Christie has introduced various new styles, but these three pieces I have are very much in the style of what is described as the "Routh Original Range" on the pottery's website.

Mug with sprigged medallion with landscape and the words "NORTH YORK MOORS NATIONAL PARK". Impressed on base "WOLD HANDTHROWN" and "HAROME N. YORKSHIRE".

Wold Pottery, Yorkshire Empty Little red earthenware pot - Wold Pottery

Nice little thing, i like the glaze both inside and out.
Incised mark, reads as Wob with a line curving down.
I think it has some age, I have had it a long time.
Any help welcomed, thank you.
