I have been collecting Vallance Pottery for a very long time; we would stop in Clinton so that I could add to my collection. But, as I found out this weekend, Bruce Vallance has retired and now devotes his time to painting. The selection was not great; there was a lot of green and black pottery, two of the colours I do not collect. But I did find a round platter with handles in the blue stripe pattern. Is this the last piece of Vallance Pottery that I will buy? It certainly looks that way.
