South Wales Pottery

The South Wales Pottery at Llanelly is described in detail by Gareth Hughes and Robert Pugh in their book Llanelly Pottery. Godden gives the dates as c.1839-58. The firm was succeeded by Holland & Guest but the South Wales Pottery marks appear to have been discontinued.

As far as moulded wares are concerned, they produced a copy of the ubiquitous Stag jug, and a teapot titled "Prince Albert", both of which are known with impressed South Wales Pottery marks. They may also have made a copy of the Hanging Game jug, but that remains unconfirmed.
