Rose Noble

Samuel William Noble

 

Rose Noble Jug purple fish.Samuel William Noble operated a pottery in the Sydney area during the 1950's and early 1960's.

This pottery produced many little ornamental jugs with unusual motifs on the side. One would see a jug with say, a blue fish and the place name of Tenant Creek on the side. But would you expect to find any fish in Tenant Creek? Let alone a blue fish! There is a list of known motifs below.

These ornamental items were directed at the tourist and souvenir markets of the day. Easy purchase would come with a slip of paper introducing the buyer to their newly prize item.

 Paper introduction.

 

     Image of the paper slip found with each ornamental item. This one states that there are 24 motifs to collect.
