The buyer should satisfy himself as to the damage by inspection or verbal report prior to bidding. Such a request can be made by telephone, fax or email. Most antique malls and shows will have a piece or so for the collector to decide from.

    The development of these mottowares is Torquay Motto Wares book illustrated, from early Aller Vale examples of the s, down to the demise of the potteries in the s. Each piece is unique in its own way even though many bear the same decoration. On the back side were the different mottos that were based on cute little sayings along with some from the Devon dialect. It was the creation of tourist trade souvenirs in the s that generated so much attention on this small English area. Keys Auctioneers Ltd would ask that prospective buyers view Lots themselves wherever issues regarding condition are seen as important to them. The accompanying illustrations reveal the lively decorations on Torquay pottery.
