Troika Pottery - St Ives and Newlyn - 1963 - 1983

Troika Pottery Designs

Virtually all Troika pots were made in moulds. Some items had only one basic mould and others, such as the textured items, had moulds with several different designs. With the textured pots, the decorators were given a free hand to modify them as they wished as long as certain colour combinations were used.

This means that with some pots, from the outside, you can't identify the exact mould from which they came. Sometimes you can tell by looking at the indentations inside the pot.
 

This area is being revised and extended constantly - please contact us if you wish to help with information about designs, corrections or new images to fill in the gaps.
