PIXIES

I do not have examples of Aller Vale Pixies holding 1) Tankard and Lantern or 2) Tankard and Scythe or 3) a Model Pixy holding a Lantern, if you have any of these or indeed any others not shown below, I would like to hear from you.

The photos refer to model pixies and to sprigged pixies, the latter are created in a mould and, flat side down, are fixed to the side of the pot. See an example of a mould at the top of the photo gallery.

Aller Vale also used slip-decorated pixies on earlier pots and these are also illustrated.

Other Potteries, mainly Watcombe, also featured pixies, generally less-well finished than the Aller Vale versions.
