Vintage Beswick Pottery Beatrice Potter's Mrs Tittlemouse Figurine. This is an outstanding piece! Beswick Pottery was originally known as J.W. Beswick and was founded in 1892 by James Wright Beswick in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. This legendary pottery began humbly, but grew in recognition and business stature as their lines became popular. It 1936 after the death of J.W. Beswick the company changed names to John Beswick Ltd and Mr. Beswick's grandson John Ewart Beswick became managing director and his son Gilbert Beswick became the sales director. Their introduction of high fired bone china figurines was groundbreaking due to their unrivaled quality and detail. In 1947 Beswick's popularity soared with the production of Beatrix Potter characters, these figurines were based on the characters in Ms. Potter's story books, followed in 1952 by the production of Disney characters. Beswick pottery used several different marks over the years, Beswick England circular stamp was found on the pottery in the 1920s, Beswick Ware Made In England was the first pottery mark recorded in 1936. Later impressed stamped pieces also had the shape number printed on the pottery and the Walt Disney pieces were stamped Walt Disney Prod Beswick England in brown and in gold. In 1969 with no new generation of Beswick to take over the family business, the company was sold to Royal Doulton. The subsequent collection had fewer colors on new pieces and the discontinuation of many other pieces. In 1989 the Royal Albert or Royal Doulton mark replaced the Beswick mark. Finally in 2002 Royal Doulton ceased production of Beswick products. This piece dates to between 1974 to 1985, it is 2 inches tall and 2 inches across the base, has the copyright date of 1948, one of the seldom seen dates on this figurine. It is in excellent condition, no chips. A beautiful addition to your collection! Please see our other listings for other vintage figurines.
