1930s pieces

  • The Benthall Pottery Company produced a late range of what can be loosely termed "art pottery" in the early 1930s, though some of the pieces are clearly intended for everyday use. 

  • Some pieces appear to display Art Deco characteristics in their use of symmetry and geometrical design, though this is certainly open to debate.

  • The 1930s catalogue shows the range of pieces available, many of which are shown in the image gallery below.

  • Shape numbers in the catalogue can be matched to actual pieces, which have the numbers incised on their bases.

  • Some pieces have an incised shape number, but are not included in the 1930s catalogue.

  • Marks can be either a simple impressed SALOPIAN mark, a black-printed “diamond” mark, or a combination of the two.
