Woop woop ..... I was given a bag of this clay to experiment with.
I've seen the clay bisque fired and it fires a warm very light terracotta colour.

My thoughts are that this was the original clay that was used for the Army bowls and early ware.
It was described as a straw or putty colour and was used for the first railway cups as well as tableware.
I think this was available to potters to purchase for many years under the name Crum Clay?
