Mottware Salt And Pepper Torquay Devon Motto Egg Shape 1920s
This is a set of salt and pepper shakers or cruets in mottoware or motto ware made in Torquay Devon, England in the 1920-1930s.
They are unmarked, so could be made by one of several area potteries.
The salt has the motto There's No Wealth But Life and the pepper says A Necessity Of Life. Both salt and pepper have a traditional cottage design on the other side and measures 2.75 inches high by 2 in diameter.
The mottoware salt and pepper cruets are in very good +++ used vintage condition and have the original cork stoppers. So cute and collectible.
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!
