Rye Pottery JugRye Pottery is a family business, producing some of the best individually made figures, animals and birds. The modern business began in 1947, but Rye in sussex have had a pottery as way back as the 12th century, in those days it was situated up on Cadborough Cliff.

Two brothers John Cole (Died 1988) and Walter Cole (Died 1999)brought the pottery at Rye and originally called it Rye Potteries this was later changed to Rye Pottery, it started production in 1947. The pieces became very popular with one leading stockists 'Heals' stocking the items. And during the 1951 Festival of Britain, many of their wares were on show with the highlight being the Rye Festival Jug, a much sought after piece by collectors.

One of the most popular items of all the wares from Rye potteries, whether from the currenmt potteries or from the ones based in Rye in the past has been the Sussex Pig, so much so that it still a popular item today.

From the late 1950's Rye Pottery were producing a wide variety of tablewares and from 1960 the Cadborough Brown range was started, this has become well sought after worldwide, with Rye Pottery exporting many shipments to the USA.

The late 70's saw the tableware share of the market dip considerably, with cheaper foreign imports being more used in British Households, so Rye diversified a bit , concentrating more on collectable figures and animals.

Rye Pottery pieces are becoming increasingly collectable now and prices are quite reasonable, but as with all items of pottery this could well change.
