Marks on Grimwades ware
Towards the end of 1917 the owners of The Bystander granted Leonard Grimwade permission to reproduce a limited number of 'Fragments From France' cartoons on items from the Grimwades range of pottery then in production.
Many early pieces feature the back stamp “Made by the Girls of Staffordshire during the Winter of 1917 when the boys were in the Trenches fighting for Liberty and Civilisation.”
With the end of the war in November 1918 this was changed to either “A Souvenir of the Great War” or “A Momento of the Great War”, with the dates of commencement, Armistice and the Signing of Peace underneath.
