Charlotte Rhead Crown Ducal 4953 Foxglove Vase – Dated 1937

This vase unusually also has the name E. Blackhurst and the date 2.9.1937 on the base, tubed in the same green colour as the decoration on the vase. I haven’t come across this before, but would imagine it was the name of a receipient of the vase, possibly as a prize, or even to mark the birth of a child or retirement of someone at the pottery? The pattern was introduced in 1937 and formed a key part of Richardson’s stand at the British Industries Fair in February of that year.

Bursley Ware Butter Dish – Probably Frederick Rhead

Bursley Ware Butter Dish Frederick RheadAn unsual Rhead designed butter (or cheese) dish, produced at Wood & Sons / Bursley Ware Ltd in the mid 1920s.

This pattern features a printed design of stylised ‘eastern’ plants and flowers, amongst smaller and simpler four-petaled flowers. These are typical Rhead motifs – the question is, was it Frederick Rhead or his daughter Charlotte Rhead who designed it!?

I’d attribute it to Frederick, given that it is a printed pattern, rather than tube-lined. I’m not entirely sure however, as the shape of the larger flowers are similar in style to Charlotte’s Seed Poppy pattern, and there are also echoes of her 1288 pattern in there.

There is no pattern number, although other examples I’ve seen (on vases), have a number of 163 (or possibly 103), which would place it as quite early on in the run of Bursley Ware numbers.

HJ Wood Bursleyware Lamp Base – TL 70 (Unrecorded Pattern)

The globular lamp base stands approx. 15cm (6″) tall, with a diameter of similar proportions.

The base carries the HJ Wood Bursleyware Charlotte Rhead stamp, together with an unrecorded TL number – 70, which has been overpainted on to another number that I can’t quite work out; it’s possibly a ‘6’, so it may have been TL6, which again was not recorded as a pattern by Bernard Bumpus.  This suggests perhaps that an earlier pattern was revised and updated, and then given an alternative TL number to fall in line with the number sequence at a later time.

An interesting and rare example of Charlotte’s final patterns!

Charlotte Rhead T & R Boote Tube Lined Tile – c.1910

Charlotte Rhead Decorated T&R Boote TileAn exceptionally rare Charlotte Rhead tube-lined tile.

It depicts a typically classical soldier, carrying a shield with the cross of St George on it. Charlotte produced a only a few tiles in this manner, which essentially formed her apprenticeship in tube-lining, some of which were sold recently as part of the Rhead-Cronin Collection in Exeter. I haven’t seen an example with this decoration before, but it is likely that it was drawn from an illustration produced by a member of her family – possibly her brother Louis, her father Frederick, or her uncle, George Woolliscroft Rhead. Many of the other tiles she produced followed this classical theme, although she also designed others featuring houses & castles, Dutch scenes, animals and children. In many cases, they were produced as gifts for friends and family rather than for commercial sale, and were often mounted in oak frames.

The tile itself is a T & R Boote blank, where Charlotte worked (producing more generic tile designs for shops etc), before joining Wood & Sons towards the end of 1912.

It measures approx. 15cm (6″) x 7.5cm (3″).

CHARLOTTE RHEAD CROWN DUCAL VASE – RARE UNRECORDED PATTERN

Charlotte Rhead Crown Ducal Vase Unrecorded PatternA very rare Charlotte Rhead Crown Ducal vase, in an unrecorded pattern. It features a tube-lined single flower head with pink and gilt gold leaves, surrounded by a swirl pattern. I’ve seen one other vase similar vase, however it was only decorated on one side – this one has the decoration on both sides. It’s likely that this was a trial design that was never commercially produced, given that there is no pattern number on the base. Occasionally, patterns proved too expensive to make to be put into full production and I believe this may well be one of those. It is unmistakably a Charlotte Rhead pattern, given the method of production, the factory and the style of decoration, some of which (i.e. the swirls) appeared again on later patterns.

The vase is Crown Ducal shape number 148 and stands approx. 15cm (6″) high, with a width of 23cm (9″) at the widest points.

BRETBY NOVELTY SERIES ASHTRAY AND CIGAR No.977 – c.1895

Bretby Novelty Ashtray

A rare Bretby piece, in the form of an ashtray, complete with a simulated half-smoked cigar and filter, as well as three coins. It dates to around 1895 – 1900. These items were intended as novelty or ‘fun’ items, intended to trick unwitting people to try and pick up the items from the base, given that they looked real to the naked eye. Bretby produced a number of them, including biscuits on a dish, nuts and nutcrackers, as well as other smoking related items. Late Victorian humour at its best! It measures approx. 5″ (13cm) x 5″ (13cm). Marked to the base as shown, with the shape number 1766 and ‘Bretby, England’.

Very good condition with no cracks or restoration.

This bowl does have the correct pattern number on it however – #29. It measures approx. 8.25″ (21cm) in diameter and stands 4″ (10cm) high. The tube-lining on this piece is of particularly good quality.

It features all-over stylised shell like mouldings, with two handles to the sides, also in a shell form. The design is potentially inspired from some of the Linthorpe shapes produced by Christopher Dresser – some of the Linthorpe modellers moved to Burmantofts, so will have no doubt taken some ideas with them! Incised Burmantofts marks to the base as shown, with the shape number 1915. There is also an artist initial – ‘T’.
