I haven't bothered with Aviemore Pottery before, but then I fell in love with this lidded jam pot:

I'm surprised at how little information there is about this pottery online, considering how often items turn up at charity shops and flea markets. Anyone know the designer and the operating dates for the company?

Cheers Happy
Aviemore always has a distinctive wax-resist pattern and limited pastel colour pallet, but every so often they produce a lovely shaped piece and colour combination.

All the ones I've seen have been stamped, but the stamp can be quite faint.

But the pottery's so distinctive even if it's not stamped you can't mistake it for anything else.

Hi

A nicely executed little curved lipped bowl. The mark is obscured by glaze but I can read the word Pottery on it.

Why is Aviemore not more popular? They produced many attractive items with very pretty glaze effects,and they are so distinctive you can spot a mile off! Moreover,its one of the very few Scottish studio potteries that produced a fair amount of work. Strange are the ways of collecting!

I think that's the problem, there's too much out there, a lot of it the same pattern

Some info about the pottery -


http://rameking.blogspot.com/2016/06/aviemore-pottery.html?m=1



“Aviemore Potteries was a brand used by Castlewynd Studios Ltd Gifford Gates, Inverdruie Aviemore Scotland PH22 1QH. Castle Wynd Studios began in 1950 at Castle Wynd Edinburgh. As the business grew, they began to move to better premises, first to Gifford, East Lothian in 1954, then to Aviemore in 1964. They moved to Kingussie in 1976 to produce fine bone china using the name “Highland China (Scotland) Ltd”. It was incorporated in 1976, some ten years after Aviemore Potteries began. James Gillon Crawford began the company and was their Ceramics Designer. They then became “Highland China (Scotland) Ltd but ceased trading in the 1980s due to the economic downturn at the time. The company was finally dissolved in 2015, although James’ daughter has recently opened a galley back in Aviemore. ”

I always have a look when I see Aviemore at fairs but usually it's the same design or very similar.
The piece I just posted was 30p at my local car boot so I didn't turn it down.
