Pots for Sale

 

 COTTAGEWARE

The Torquay potters produced pots decorated with cottages using various techniques;  painting with pigments (faience), painting with slips, molding cottage shapes.  The pots decorated by painting with slips usually included a motto or saying scribed into the slip (sgraffito). 

Faience Cottages.

 These finely painted pots were largely "generic" cottages.  However, a few named cottages such as Shakespeare's Cottage were produced.
