Collecting Doulton novelties : jam pots

a href=””>20140802-121402-44042237.jpg

Jam pots are another area that collectors often focus on to build up a collection. Of course there are countless examples produced with seriesware patterns on them and still further numbers with tableware designs decorating them.
There are a small group, however, of moulded fruit examples of jam pots. The apple and pear are the work of Vera Huggins at Doulton’s of Lambeth and date to the 1920-30 period, whilst the designer of the two Burslem pots is unknown but date again to the same period but rather than being stoneware, they were made of earthenware and carry D numbers just like many fancy wares. The pineapple is dated 1933.
I personally have the apple and pear and they fit perfectly in the kitchen!
