Blanche Vulliamy Pottery Milk JugThe spout is modelled as a flying bat with open mouth, the wings wrapped around each side, the handle a crescent moon, glazed in colors, printed mark, registered design no.820778. Five inches tall. Blanche Georgiana Vulliamy created figures from a wide variety of materials with special emphasis on wax and clay models which were used as a basis for pottery designs. At a pottery exhibition at Alexandra House in 1904, Queen Mary, then the Princess of Wales, purchased some of her 'Smiley Poggs' caricature pottery figures for which Blanche was well known. She moved to Torquay, Devon to live with her grandparents, during which time she acquainted herself with the pottery industry in South Devon, particularly the Aller Vale Art Pottery, and the potteries in Barnstaple, North Devon. She died at Amersham, Buckinghamshire on 4 August 1923, aged 54.
