|Maker: Unattributed Maker Pattern:Belle Vue Series
Soup Plate Guys Cliff c1830
A pretty plate depicting Guys Cliff, Warwickshire. The maker of items in this series is sometimes given as Belle Vue Pottery, Hull, but this is clearly by a superior pottery and Belle Vue is the series name for the pattern. Guy's Cliffe is today a hamlet in the civil parish of Leek Wootton and Guy's Cliffe just outside Warwick. The Cliffe is a sandstone outcrop, which overlooks the River Avon, named after the 10th Century Guy of Warwick, who lived the life of a penitent in a cave in the Cliffe. Samuel Greatheed, MP for Coventry, bought the estate in 1751 and built a house in the Palladian style. Later the actress Sarah Siddons was to become a frequent visitor. His son Bertie extended the house in the early 1800s. It passed by descent into the Heber-Percy family, who sold it in 1946. During the 1950s the house began a slide into dereliction and today is a ruin. Blue printed backstamp: Guys Cliff, Warwickshire and Belle Vue in banner. A little crazing to the glaze mainly on the back, otherwise remarkably good condition.
