A COLLECTION OF Yorkshire pottery drew in more than 500 visitors to the Great Yorkshire Showground for the first day of the Harrogate Antiques Fair.

Belonging to pottery specialist Roger De Ville, the collection includes pieces made by potteries in the 18th and 19th centuries when Leeds was home to a large number of pottery and porcelain manufacturers. Among the many highlights at the fair, which continues throughout the weekend at the Harrogate venue, is a rare item, a plate inscribed ‘George IV Crowned July 19th, 1821’, priced at £950. Marked Hartley Greens & Co, the insignia of a Leeds potter, the plate was used at a dinner at Leeds Parish Church School, plus a 1790 Leeds Creamware teapot made by Leeds Pottery.
