Forster and Hunt Honiton

Ellis Sydney Forster and William Hunt appear to have taken over the Honiton Pottery from the previous owner James Webber towards the end of the 19th century. Prior to that they appeared to have worked at the pottery.

The pottery Forster and Hunt produced was similar to Webber for instance cottages and boats in slip on a cream background with mottoes scratched through the slip to show the dark local clay. The majority of these are unmarked and often get attributed to the other Devon potteries of the time. Other products tended to be baking dishes, bread containers etc.

They continued to produce similar wares until they sold the pottery to Charles Collard at around 1918.
