The SylvaC name was first used by pottery company Shaw & Copestake in the 1930s, although the factory had been in operation since the late 1890s. Tableware, animal figures and ornaments were all part of the output, along with moulded and matt glazed earthenware vases and novelties. Inexpensive and mass-produced in quantity, SylvaC has become quite popular; items showing a high quality, detailed moulding, plus animal figures and jugs featuring moulded animal handles are all collectable. Wall pockets decorated with fairies and elves are also sought after. The most popular and valuable are the larger stylised figurines with unusual matt glazes, such as the koala and the sea monster cruet. Production ceased in 1982, but reproductions continued to be made after this date.
