Jersey is the largest of the Channel Isles, and is part of Britain. It is situated just 19 miles from France.  One of our favourite types of pottery is Jersey Pottery. Many of their 1960/70s designs were very Scandinavian in style, making them a popular choice for vintage collectors today.

Above a bright Flower Power Daisy design on a table mat which can also be used as a pot stand. Many people like to use these as artworks now, prop on a shelf or stick to the wall with a special no more nails tape. I have them dancing around my bedroom mirror and they look superb.

These abstract flower patterns really do feel European in design, they come in a large circle tile with a cork back

and appear in many designs and colour ways and patterns making them infinitely collectable...

The same design was available in orange and also blue. There may have been other colours available too.

Smaller coaster sized tiles are often found in little metal holders, again they have a cork backing to keep your furniture safe:

Jersey Pottery made small minimal jugs for mint sauce, these are absolutely delightful with their leafy designs.

The company began in 1946 and was initially a tourist attraction. In 1954 the pottery was bought by the family who still run this thriving business.

We love the early pottery from the 70s, which has a very clear look and feel. Keep an eye out for teeny leaf and berry motifs, such as those found on the mint sauce jug & egg cup (above), and beautiful cheese board (below).

These wonderfully shaped, high quality cheese boards come in a range of designs, including floral...

Jersey Pottery also created a range of bird dishes to rival the now very collectable bird ashtrays made by Carltonware and Hornsea.

These birds feature hand painted abstract designs, and can appear in blue, green, brown and sienna colours. This beautiful example was originally for sale in the yay retro! shop. 

Simple hand painted stripes are a feature of Jersey Pottery ware, these minimal designs were something new and exciting in the 60s and 70s..

When Scandinavian designs were also seemingly influencing Jersey Pottery, take a look at the wonderful royal blue posy pot below...
