Percy Simpson was one of the finest later Coalport
ceramic artists. He painted for the concern in Shropshire between 1901
and 1926. When the Coalport name then moved to Staffordshire, Simpson
went with it to later become art director. It is likely this piece was
produced in the early years after the move. Interesting to note that
the style and subject matter is also reminiscent of the work of
Frederick H. Chivers who left Coalport for Worcester with the
width 232 mm max. approximately 9 1/4 inches.
