Marianne de Trey set up her own pottery to provide for her young family after her potter husband, Sam Haile, was tragically killed in a road accident a year after they moved to the South West. The pottery was a success producing domestic and stylish pottery. After it closed she continued (continues?) to produce individual pieces in porcelain.

The pottery was part of the Dartington Estate in Devon, which was purchased by Leonard and Dorothy Elmhirst (a Whitney heiress) after their marriage in 1925. On the estate they had built their modernist home, High Cross House, which was designed by the Swiss architect, William Lescaze, in 1932. The Elmhirsts wished to encourage all type of craftspeople there and were partly successful in this. Marianne de Trey was born in London, of Swiss parents, in 1913 and is still around, although did stop potting a few years ago.

The lidded sugar bowl in the first picture on this thread is in perhaps the most common decoration that was used by Marianne de Trey and her team and was called "Pattern 1". It was in production from 1960 to 1980.

Below is a slipware cream jug in red earthenware from the early to mid 1950s. This bears the same "shell" seal as the sugar bowl.

Excellent article.
Love this bit:

[de Trey] describes the drama of the kiln opening with its mixture of anxiety and anticipation:

Well, that was wonderful, there were things that turned out as you hoped they would and things that got stuck together and things that fell off the roof.[80]

Happy

Mark is supposed to be a shell. Looks like a tree to me.

As we don't often get the opportunity, we ought to wish Marianne a Happy Birthday - 100 years old today.
