Lownds Pateman 1997-2002
The Lownds Pateman family had a long association with the Torquay potteries supplying small scent filled bottles for the West Country tourist industry before buying the Babbacombe Pottery in 1997. They made various pomanders, a number of large cats and various multicoloured cockerels to name a few items. For the last few years until it closed the pottery was run by Brian Lownds Pateman. It is believed the business was reformed elsewhere and is still trading under the same name.
