Beswick Pottery facts:
- Established in 1894 at Longton in Stoke on Trent, and the Beswick Pottery first made its name producing affordable tableware and ornaments.
- Beswick turned to producing animal figurines in the 1930s for which they are perhaps best known nowadays. Beswick was sold to Royal Doulton in 1969, and continued producing figurines up until the closure of the pottery in 2002.
- Many Beswick pieces are sold at auction for very reasonable prices. However, rarities such as the Shire Horse (model 818) still command large sums of money, where we sold an example of this piece for £3,400 in 2011, for example.
