Secure Payments By
This set of six dishes within a wooden tray is a Susie Cooper item which is rare to find in such good condition. It is pure Art Deco and also a very attractive design, painted with fishes and vegetables to match the canapes and crudites for which it is intended. It was made by the firm of Wood & Sons for the Susie Cooper Pottery in Burslem, Stoke on Trent and each tray has a facsimile Susie Cooper signature and CROWN WORKS BURSLEM, ENGLAND printed on the base. Each tray also has a small red painted dot, presumably the painter's mark. The wooden tray is part of the ensemble. It is unvarnished and has a label on the underside which is not decipherable. For a similar set with different decoration please see the V & A Museum number C.126A-1985
The whole tray is 45 x 24.5 cm ( 18 x 9.5 inches). Large dishes 25 x 11 (10 inches x 4.5 inches), Small dishes 12.5 x 11 (5 inches by 4.5 inches), each dish about 4 cm deep.
Chester's Farm Antiques has clarified that the Susie Cooper Crown Works Burslem Hors D'oeuvres Set c.1939 (LA223514) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c.1939
Small loss to the corner on of the underside of the wooden tray (see image). Otherwise excellent condition (light crazing as expected).
