Myott, Son & Co. Dinnerware is ceramic tableware produced by the English pottery manufacturer Myott, Son & Co.

 

Brief history and description

Myott, Son & Co. was originally founded in 1898 as a family-run business based in Staffordshire Potteries, England.

The company originally became well-known for manufacturing a range of popular Art Deco wares during the 1930s, and some of the many popular Myott products during this time included vases, jugs and wall pockets, to name a few.

Myott's dinnerware sets generally consist of various types of cups, saucers, plates and platters which can range in style, shape and purpose, and the sets typically feature decorative designs, images or patterns, (such as the "English Indian Tree" or "Elegance" patterns).

Guide for collectors

Myott dinnerware items that are sold as a complete matching set are considered to be rare, but not necessarily the most valuable. Dinnerware items which feature blue or red colouring (as opposed to brown, tan or orange), or items which feature unique shapes or patterns are considered to be the most rare.

Restoration of a Myott dinnerware item is recommended, but only if there is noticeable damage. However, restoring the item may decrease its value.
