Charming red and amber 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 (obscured). The bowl is 6 cm in height and 9.5 cm maximum diameter. 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 1982 and continued to submit designs whilst the Pottery remained in production.

Linthorpe Pottery Small Red and Amber Fluted Bowl c1885
The bowl is in very good condition commensurate with age. Some areas of light crazing, no losses. The bowl has two hairlines running up to its rim (shown in last image) - these being from stresses in its original firing. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
