This is a lovely Motto Ware cup in the Cottage Pattern by the Watcombe Pottery in Devon, England.

It is usually of red clay decorated with bright glazes, cottages and mottos or sayings that run the gamut from proverbs and sound advice to nearly outrageous. Always fun and different and very collectible!

The Cottage pattern features a thatched house with blue trim and quaint sayings as seen in pic #2. Handpainted and created in the 1930s.

Absolutely adorable vintage Watcombe pottery cup

Saying: "The cup that cheers".

Measures: 2 3/4" with handle included.

Watcombe Pottery
Watcombe Pottery, originally known as The Watcombe Terra-Cotta Clay Company, was started by G J Allen in 1871 to use the red clay found around the area of Torquay in Devon.

The company very quickly established a reputation and its wares were exhibited internationally within a few years. The pottery expanded rapidly, employing a vast work force by the end of the decade.

The company was bought by Evans & Co in 1884 after the death of Allen, and in 1901 was acquired by Hexter, Humpherson & Co, who amalgamated it with Aller Vale Pottery. The new pottery was known as Royal Aller Vale & Watcombe Co.

The company continued to produce pottery until 1962.This particular piece was made in 1930 or earlier.
