Not sure about this, my gut feeling tells me American, the marks on the base are quite obscure, all i can make of it is Wesco.....? I think, and a registered trade mark and the letters C.N.A within a triangle, its got some age but not sure on date hoping its not to early for the forum.

Thanks again Rob.Candy Ware Image313Candy Ware Image314Candy Ware Image315

Hi just an addition to Big Ed's answer it would also of had 'Td.Mk' under the tirangle ( I think its there looking at your picture but hard to see) I believe that particular mark was first used in 1916 so that narrows the date a bit more for you :)

Thanks Magpie, I've just dug out my G A. Godden marks book, and seen the mark, like you say 1916+, but doesn't show any other marks or say when the mark changed, I'll have a guess tho and say 1920's/30's.

Candy Ware Empty Candy art pottery (Newton Abbot, Devon).

Candy & Co, Newton Abbot, Devon, was started in the 1870s by
Frank Candy, initially making bricks and salt-glazed wares.

The production of art pottery started in 1922 and was a sideline to
it's main production of tiled fireplaces, glazed bricks quarry tiles
and sanitary pipes. By the early 1950s, when the art-pottery section
was closed down, Candy was one of the largest ceramics factories
in the country. It survived in name, as a tile manufacturer,
until 1998.

Numerous marks, relief-moulded or printed, and paper or foil labels
were used, some early moulded marks include a shape number.
The later marks were ink-stamped, and varnished over, so are
often faded or hard to make out.

"WESCONTREE WARE" (1922-36).
Early pieces were moulded, rather than thrown.

Most of my examples are effectively unmarked, with just
the remains of varnish, or paper label adhesive on the bases.
Luckily that means I picked most of them up for nothing!

I have always thought that this pottery is under-rated and it is great to see images of so many Candy Ware pots. Thanks DD.
