In the early 1870s, Simon Fielding purchased the Railway Works in Stoke-on-Trent but the business failed and was rescued by Simon’s son, Abraham. S Fielding and Co became a successful producer of majolica wares. From the 1880s, they began calling their wares “Crown Devon” and in 1912, they changed their name to Devon Pottery.
From the late 19th century, S Fielding produced more than twenty different patterns of painted wares. The most popular today is Royal Devon. Other patterns include Royal Chelsea, Royal Sussex, Royal Stuart, Royal Windsor, Royal Kent, Royal Kew and the very rare Royal Scotia. Royal Devon paintings included scenes of pheasants, dogs, peacocks and cattle and were at first regarded as “poor man’s Royal Worcester”.
Devon Pottery also produced series of figurines and seaside novelty wares. Millions of these were produced during the 1930s. Art deco figurines modelled by Kathleen Parsons in the 1930s are particularly collectable. Musical novelties produced before and after the Second World War are also highly collectable.
The Devon Pottery closed in 1982.
