Pansy Watt Pottery

 
The Pansy Watt Pottery pattern was the first attempt at hand painted Watt Pottery.  The production of the Pansy pattern began in the early 1950s and continued for several years.  Although the Pansy pattern is not the most popular pattern searched for by Watt Pottery collectors, it is very colorful and interesting because of the many variations.  The Raised Watt Pottery pattern, also called Wild Rose, was the first variation of the Pansy pattern and consisted of the application of a rose colored clay flower with a yellow center and small green leaves on either side of the flower.  This was a very unusual application because it was not painted directly on the pottery like all other Watt Pottery pieces but rather dyed first and then applied.  Not very many of these particular Pansy pieces were produced because the color of the flower faded during the kiln firing.  Another Watt Pottery variation of the Pansy pattern was the Cut Leaf Pansy.  This piece was decorated with a large rose colored flower highlighted with a yellow center painted directly onto the pottery.  A stylus tool was then used to cut look alike veins in the leaves which in turn left some roughness in the clay.  The Watts Pottery Company continued producing the Pansy pattern without cutting the veins in the leaves.  The new variation without the veins is called the Old Pansy pattern.  Both of the Watt Pottery Cut Leaf and Old Pansy patterns usually have a thin black band at the top, bottom, or around the edge of each piece.  Some of the pieces will have narrow green and red bands, and often times are decorated with the addition of small red swirls.  Another variation of the Watt Pottery Pansy pattern is decorated with a large red flower with a white cross shaped center and a single wide green band.  This particular variation is called the Cross Hatch Pansy pattern.  The Watt Pottery Company used the name Rio Rose in their trade journal advertising, but your collectors today use the term Pansy for the pattern name.  The Pansy Watt Pottery patterns are very collectible pieces today because they are just hard to locate.  The Pansy pattern was the very earliest of the Watt Pottery decorated pottery.
