I love collecting honey pots. The variations and styles are endless and this gorgeous Art Deco Crown Devon cottage beehive honey pot or jar is beautifully moulded and hand-painted and typical of the period.
Made circa the late 1930′s to 1940′s and fully backstamped “Crown Devon – Made in England” and the impressed model number “509S”. Measures approximately 10cm high by 8.5cm wide.
Overall, this fabulous honey pot is in very good condition for its age and comes with its original lid (which is often broken or badly damaged). This pot is free from any chips or cracks but there is some minor age-related crazing, staining and rubbing in areas (such as the finial and inside) and the wing of the moulded bee may have been repaired at some point (there is a line that goes round the outer wing, but you would never notice at all).
A beautiful and very collectable piece of Art Deco Crown Devon pottery.More Information…
