This popular Cornish pottery first started producing pottery in c1963 and unfortunately only lasted for 20 years closing down in 1983. During this time it moved from its original location in St Ives to Newlyn in Cornwall in c1970.

A range of people worked at the pottery over the years so you’ll often find different decorator marks on the base – a particular decorator is often a popular theme of collecting Troika!

The pottery produced a whole range of different shapes from smaller pieces such as Marmalade and Cube vases, medium pieces like the Spice vase or Rectangular vase to large pieces like the Double base vase, a range of plaques and a whole range of different style lamp bases. There really is a shape for everyone!
