This is a wonderful lustre dish designed by Richard Joyce, with his monogram and Pilkington Lancastrian marks to the base for 1924-29.
With a rare "seaweed" glaze, and the body of the fish pressed to provide a semi-relief effect, this is a highly experimental and inventive piece typical of the creativity of Joyce.
The gold lustre in this example is a genuine lustre glaze, fired underneath the transparent glaze.
The Pilkington's Royal Lancastrian Art Pottery is one of the most famous and innovative to have emerged at the end of the 19th century, feeding the new middle class market for fine decorative ware. They engaged the services of many fine artists including Gordon Forsyth and Walter Crane. Richard Joyce had a long association with the pottery joining in 1904 as an "animal modeller" and staying there until his death in 1931. His passion was for painting and despite his quiet manner he was not afraid to experiment with new styles and techniques, as shown by this dish.
