Charming, deep-ruby coloured small bowl with delicately fluted rim from the Linthorpe Pottery c1885. Characteristic deep golden honey coloured glaze to its interior. The bowl has the impressed mark for the Linthorpe Pottery to its base. 7.5cm height, 8cm wide. Linthorpe Pottery designs were strongly influenced by Christopher Dresser who was its artistic director during its earlier years - the Pottery only being in existence between 1879 and 1889.
In 1879 John Harrison (a local businessman) established Linthorpe Pottery in conjunction with Christopher Dresser, one of the most influential designers of the late 19th century. Dresser acted as artistic director at the Pottery until 1882 and continued to submit designs whilst the Pottery remained in production.
