Diana Pottery Australia History & Gallery

Diana Pottery Australia History & Gallery (updated June 2023)

I collected Diana for about 30 years, but I have only kept a couple of favourite pieces for myself now.

Diana Pottery Australia operated from 1941 to 1966 in Marrickville Sydney and was the most important Australian ceramics manufacturer during this time.

They are well know for slip-ware, hand painted pottery, kitchenware and ovenware.

They produced decorative earthenware table vases, wall pocket vases, decanters, figurines and a popular range of tableware called Nefertiti which consisted of casserole dishes, serving platters and ramekins.  The vases and figurines were often glazed in pearly pastel blues, pinks and yellows, while the Nefertiti range came in both contrasting mustard and brown, and white.

The most desirable items from Diana are hand-painted items. A vase hand-painted in 1954 with a landscape (under glaze) was sold at Action for A$325 in 2020. They also produced musical ‘Waltzing Matilda’ jugs and mugs  (see https://collection.maas.museum/object/358209 ) and sporting tankards.
