Vande and Rose Noble Potteries of Mosman

Vande Pottery

Mosman Library has been collecting unique pieces of pottery made by two commercial potteries that flourished in Mosman during the 1950s and 1960s.

These potteries called Vande and Rose Noble were small but successful operations producing souvenir ware to cater for the booming tourist industry in post-war Australia. In 2002 Mosman Library held the first public exhibition of Vande and Rose Noble pottery.

The collecting initiative has resulted in the Mosman Local Studies Collection having over 60 significant examples that are representative of the ceramics produced by Vande and Rose Noble.

Currently a number of Vande pieces from the Library’s collection are on loan to the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour for Trash or Treasure? Souvenirs of Travel, an exhibition that examines collecting travel memorabilia.

Trash or Treasure? Souvenirs of Travel will be on view until May 2009.
