    Canadian Blue Mountain Pottery Tea & Coffee Set with short mugs, flower vase, and tray. Green Drip. All are signed. Tray is both labelled and signed.

    As a Blue Mountain collector, the problem I see most often is colour difference. Since these items were purchased as a set — and likely originally, as well — the glaze is well colour matched throughout the set.

    The set doesn’t appear to have ever been used. The glazing is rich in colour, luminous, free from chips, cracks, flea bites, crazing, etc. The unglazed areas are deep red-brown in colour.

    The red clay used in the creation of Blue Mountain Pottery pieces was originally obtained from the slopes of the Blue Mountain in Ontario. The clay was discovered accidentally during an expansion of the resort — according to Blue Mountain Resort history articulated by the son of the resort’s founder.

    Those intrigued by the red clay dug from the side of the Blue Mountain in the early 1950s just happened to include a Czechoslovakian refugee resort dishwasher named Dennis Tupy. Tupy, a skilled mould maker who held a Czech ceramic certificate, joined Blue Mountain resort owner Jozo Weider to create the Blue Mountain Pottery Company. (Source: mountainlifemedia.ca)

      Thank you racer4four, Newfld, Eileen, Manikin, for the comments.

      Interesting, racer4four. I don’t see many animals here, at all.

      Thanks ...

      For the Loves.

      ** Eileen — Yes, vintage. Company no longer in business. They manufactured their distinctive glaze and design pottery in Ontario, Canada. And initially the clay came from the nearby Blue Mountain, after which the company was named.
