    Drostdy Ware

    I am looking for information about 2 plates of Drotsdy Ware hand painted by France Marot, pix attached.
    I believe they came into my parents possession in the 1950's.
    Any information would be appreciated.

    Hi,
    What lovely plates you have. They date post 1955. Here is a site with much history on Drostdy pottery from the Drostdy Museum.

    Drostdy Museum

    This site mentions how Frace Marot was recruited from a local college, and eventually became the head of Drostdy pottery Design and Arts Department.

    Check the Worthopedia, as there are several pieces there by Marot.

    Hope that this is helpful.
