A.E. Gray / Grays Pottery marks

As Susis Cooper only worked at Grays Pottery from 1922 until 1929 there are only a few marks normally encountered which can be associated with her work. The most significant of these marks has become known as the 'Liner' mark and includes the words designed by Susie Cooper. This mark is thought to have been designed by Susie herself and was a reflection of the new fashion for including a designer name on pottery during the 1920s.

Clipper
Hand-Painted Grays Pottery Hanley England.

IMPORTANT:
A later version of this mark also exists with HANLEY being replaced by STOKE ON TRENT. Susie Cooper had left Grays before this move took place so pieces marked STOKE ON TRENT are not likely to have been designed by her. A few patterns are known to have continued in production after she left, some even have minor pattern changes which only adds to the confusion.
