This is a very nice piece of Torquay, Mottoware, of the sailboat pattern. There is no mark of the bottom of this circa 1910-20 piece, but it is clearly authentic. The motto is simply "A Place for Hat Pins," and there are 9 places for pins. i have included the six pins which came with the piece. This piece of pottery is in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips, and it measures 5 inches tall, and the base is 3 and 1/4 inches in diameter. The colors on this piece of mottoware are beautiful; a lovely teal and pink.
