WWI Pottery

 FIRST WORLD WAR WARE

 There are four main types of collectable World War 1 pottery that you are likely to find. Commemorative ware marks the general outburst of joy at the ending of the hostilities, and generally shows emblems of peace printed on mugs, bowls and plates.

 Patriotic busts and figurines show the heroes and villains of the war, often with a motto or rallying cry added.

 The ranges of crested ware that were the most popular souvenir pottery of a more peaceful age and were made by firms such as Goss, Swan and Carlton, were broadened to include models of military subjects, where regimental insignia replaced the town crests that gave the ware its name.

 The final category, Bairnsfatherware, featured the likeness of Old Bill, either modelled in 3-D or in the form of transfer-printed reproductions of the most famous cartoons on ordinary Staffordshire domestic wares of the time.
