Boleslawiec Polish Pottery.
We love unusual, beautiful and functional products. At Polkadot Lane UK we are proud to offer pieces we love to cherish, display and use in our home.
We pride ourselves on carefully sourcing the finest and most beautiful Boleslawiec Polish Pottery from the small town of Boleslawiec in Lower Silesia Poland. The area is rich in Stoneware clay and the pottery has evolved over centuries around its natural resources resulting in the establishment of many Pottery schools in Boleslawiec.
Early pottery production in Boleslawiec involved decorating each piece using potatoes for the stamping. The traditional patterns of cobalt blue, were stamped with designs that represented twigs, spots and peacock feathers.
The pottery was glazed and then fired to very high temperatures. This was and still is a process involving great skill and dexterity.
The Boleslawiec spot pattern and the mosquito pattern are today the most recognisable of all the Polish Pottery patterns. Polkadot Lane call the mosquito pattern the Fern Spot pattern.
Many of the pieces have unique and intricate hand painted patterns based on fruits, flowers and countryside. Individual pieces of Polish Pottery are never identical and for this reason each piece is original, collectable and unique.
Genuine Boleslawiec Polish pottery will always show the stamp ‘Hand made in Poland’ and will have the manufacturers logo on the bottom. Beware of the copies which do not have this manufactures identification.
Ceramiczne Manufaktura and Ceramiczne Artystyczna supply the bulk of our pottery. The ceramics from these long established producers come with a very high reputation.
