Richly glazed footed vase from the Linthorpe Pottery c1885. The vase is of inverted baluster form on a footed base with trumpet neck and flared scalloped rim. Body heavily glazed in turquoise with chestnut-brown neck and rim. Deeper turquoise towards the base where the glaze has collected. Impressed Linthorpe Pottery mark to base and design number 1986. The vase is approximately 20.5 cm in height and 9 cm maximum diameter. 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. 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.
