Treasure hunters set to descend on Emma Bridgewater

To celebrate the end of a very special birthday year for Emma Bridgewater Pottery, staff at the factory have been working flat out producing ware in historic patterns which are no longer available.

The sale which wraps up the company’s 25th birthday celebrations will see old patterns hitting the shelves solely for the sale in Morning Glory, Red Flowers, Rise and Shine and Love and Kisses designs.

In addition the sale is expected to attract some of the most knowledgeable collectors of Emma Bridgewater pottery as studio samples will be hidden among the sale shelves in the factory shop and studio specials will be available in the gift shop.

“This sale brings to an end our 25th birthday year so we’re aiming to make it something special for our loyal customers, and a little exciting too with a number of unexpected pieces hidden among the shelves for people to discover.

“This year we have also bowed to customer demand to start the sale before the New Year for the first time. Normally we have dozens of customers queuing outside the door for several hours to be the first in ““ so this year we anticipate even more people on our doorstep.”

To ensure all the family is catered for on site throughout the sale period, children can get creative in the supervised decorating studio, dads are welcome to relax and read the papers in the kitchen café while mum shops.

The sale begins at 9am on Wednesday 29th December for members of the Emma Bridgewater Collectors Club, and opens to the general public at 1pm on the 29th.
