Can anyone tell me about Gempo - pottery made in Japan for Australians in about the 1970/80's?
I collect different Gempo items I find on ebay, but I can not find any information about the pottery itself other than it's Japanese and was made for the Australian consumer. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I used Google to look up " Gempo Pottery from Australia ", and Ebay . com had eight items for sale. You might want to give google a try , and see what it does for you. God Bless You.
Thanks for your suggestion. Have given it a try but I can't seem to get any information on the pottery itself. Many thanks.
No idea about that but if like to by modern pottery in the UK. I brought Emma Bridgewater(www.algram.co.uk) pottery it is amazing.
I am trying to find out more myself. I have never found any documentation on Gempo, which is of course, important in itself.
The labels on these items are usually for UCTCI - Japan.
I will add that it was not just made for the Australian market. I have seen an item listed with a Disney Land price sticker. I have a monkey citrus squeezer, a hippopotamus citrus squeezer. I also have a pig citrus squeezer with an additional label for "Collectable Classics" from the USA. I have also purchased these items from the UK.
It appears that Gempo was just an Australian importer. See image;
The internet being what the internet is has attributed these items to the an Australian importer rather than the pottery. People using the internet often use info they find without qualification.
I hope this helps some collectors.
As unusual as it may sound I have a plaster mould used to manufacture the the pig citrus juicer.
This was purchased from a seller in the USA and this opens us to a lot of questions.
