Description

A Christopher Dresser design for Linthorpe Pottery art vase c1880. The vase is of compressed ovoid footed form with tapering cylindrical neck and twin handles. Drip glaze of vivid blues and tonal greens on a deep brown and russet body. Abstract aztec-inspired design front and back. Impressed Chr. Dresser signature and Linthorpe marks. Design number 337.

This listing is for one of a pair of vases (other vase listed as EC238).

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. Dresser recommended Henry Tooth, an artist from Buckinghamshire working at that time on the Isle of Wight, as pottery manager. Henry Tooth, with no prior experience of clay or pottery left Ryde for Linthorpe, spending time at the T.G. Green pottery in Church Gresley, Derbyshire to get a foundation in ceramics. Henry Tooth had brought Richard Patey with him from the Isle of Wight, who managed the pottery after he left in 1882 (to establish to Bretby Pottery in partnership with William Ault). Linthorpe Pottery was only in existence between 1879 and 1889.
