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. 

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. 

Also, look out for abstract flower patterns such as the one found on this table mat or pot stand: can also find pot stands/ table mats with Jersey Pottery's version of 1960s Flower Power designs..

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...
