 Royal Vale was a trade name of Herbert John Colclough from when they were at the Vale Pottery Works.
Originally the name Royal Vale was used in conjunction with the Colclough mark - but was later used on its own 


This set is made up of mainly 'Crown Royal' pieces, but some marked 'Colclough' as well. 
The Ivy design is consistent throughout.
