Beautiful Lidded Sugar Pot from Hornsea Pottery in the Saffron pattern created by John Clappison, who was the most notable of the designers.
Based in the coastal town of Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the pottery was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson and partly funded by a butcher friend, Philip Clappison, father of John Clappison. The pottery flourished until 2000 when it went into administration.
Approximate dimensions : 6" / 155mm high to top of lid.
In good vintage condition, this lovely pot will enhance any collection of Hornsea. The lid shows signs of wear on the inside which will not show on display.
Backstamp for 1976.
A beautiful piece.
