Mottoware Cream Dish Be Canny With The Cream Pedestal Clotted Cream Dish 1910
This is a rare pedestal clotted cream dish made by Watcombe Torquay, Devon England in mottoware or motto ware pottery.
The motto or saying is Be Canny With The Cream with the traditional Scandy flower design and it was made 1910-1920s and is unmarked as many Watcombe pieces were during that time.
The clotted cream dish measures 3 inches high by 3.5 inches in diameter and is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips or cracks and only minor general age consistent crazing.
A cute item of mottoware from our last England trip with a great motto and a very hard to find shape.
You'd better be Canny With The Cream because it's solid cholesterol but absolutely heavenly.
Famous and fun motto ware or mottoware has been manufactured in the south of England from the 1860s until the factories closed in the 1960s.
It is usually of red clay decorated with bright glazes, cottages and mottos or sayings that run the gamut from proverbs and sound advice to nearly outrageous. Always fun and different and very collectible!
