Ann Bristow - Mark says Lemon & Son 504 Weston-S-Mare.Wesuma Pottery. In 1926 Tom Lemon bought a pottery in Weston- super-Mare. He first produced Torquay type pottery but later produced his own designs. He died in 1941 and the pottery was destroyed by a bomb in 1942.
Anna - Hi sorry to bother you! um....may I ask one question? Are you Frank Gricus who have been to Taiwan?
Frank - Yes, I did spend 8 months in Taipei from July 2001 to February 2002. I was training project managers for a US software company. The same company brought me to the UK where I have lived off and on since then. Email me at sno.problem@btinternet.com
TOM THOMPSON - SIMILAR ITEMS ARE ON E BAY. iHAVE ONE SAME SIZE NO 386. IT IS THE WESTON SUPER MARE ALSO KNOWN AS WE- SU-MA WESUMA. DESCRIBED CORRECTLY BY AB
Mr. M A Lemon - This a typical Wesuma pot as produced by Tom Lemon with scraffito design by Cyril Lemon. I am an avid collector of Tom's work and I have many Deco art pots from the Wesuma Pottery. The numbers on the underside always refer to the item shape. Fine pots from an under-rated but highly talented craftsman.
