ENGLISH ART POTTERY TULIP PATTERN ART
NOUVEAU DISH WITH ARTIST MONOGRAM DATED 1904
unusual Brannam art nouveau dish with a design clearly indicating the
influence of Liberty of London - who had exclusive rights to retail
Barum Ware in the capital at this time. A super shaped dish with tube
lined art nouveau Tulip decoration. The piece is
dated 1904 and is an artist signed piece monogrammed with the initials
TL. This is Devon art potter Thomas Arthur Liverton who became
increasingly interested in the development of art nouveau designs. A
lovely item not to be missed!"Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.

height 60 mm max. width 130 mm max.
Dated 1904 and signed by the artist, T.L monogram for
Thomas Liverton to base.
In good general display condition. There are no significant chips or
cracks to pottery body. No restoration. Note some surface glaze flaking
to thick majolica style decorative finish in places: not uncommon with
art pottery of this period - as found on Della Robbia and Elton Wares.
This does not spoil the overall attractiveness and enjoyment of a
decorative and rare surviving example. A good restorer could make good,
near invisible, decorative cosmetic repair if required.
