Great footage of Jubilee cups being made in Stoke-on-Trent.
Titles read: 'The Potters' GOOD TURN!'
Shot of the great kilns at Longton. We then see several shots of potters making crockery for the Jubilee. They take lumps of clay and put them on their turntables, then shape them into pots and cylindrical shapes. Handles are taken out of moulds and trimmed, then fixed to the cup shapes.
The cups are put in a special container inside the kiln. After firing they are cooled off then dipped into glaze. The cups are then decorated with a special Jubilee design which is stuck on in transfer form. Girls sitting at tables finish the mugs off by lining the edges with liquid silver. C/U of the finished mug, showing pictures of Queen Mary and King George V in an ornate design.
