I have a similar to whats shown in this picture. I've no idea that it is quite rare. I bought it out of a charity shop to drink wine out of while I watched Game of Thrones! I'm wondering if you could kindly email me so I could send you some photographs of it. Its Just by pure chance that 2 years later I noticed "Dornoch Pottery" on the edge of the base :)

Kindest Regards,

I have the exact same tankard which I use daily. Is is rare and what value does it have?
Comment left on 24 August 2022 at 18:04 by Irene Yes, these are quite rare because the pottery closed in the 1970s. However, more pieces are coming to light now. It is difficult to put a price on them. These tankards were donated to a charity shop. A local antique shop has had pieces on sale from around £50 to £100 Administrator
These were made by my father Alan Walker, who was the potter, and owned Dornoch Pottery. We moved to Norfolk in, I think, 1976 and the new pottery was called Elsing Pottery.

I'm glad his stuff is still being enjoyed.
