LINTHORPE ART POTTERY MAJOLICA PART TEA SET IN THE STYLE OF CHRISTOPHER DRESSER C.1880

"Original and collectable Linthorpe art pottery - influenced by and possibly an actual Christopher Dresser design. This super part tea set demonstrates all that is best about Linthorpe art pottery: fabulous innovative shapes to the pots and stunning, attractive, glaze finishes. It includes a Linthorpe teapot and cover that stylistically resembles known Dresser designs in metalwork and silver plate; a matching Linthorpe cream jug and three Linthorpe teacups and saucers which are of noted Dresser shape. A further saucer, illustrated as a teapot stand, is also included. A great British Art Pottery antique and a rare opportunity for the discerning British art pottery collector." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear

Dimensions: height teapot 120 mm max., width saucer 125 mm max., height cream jug 95 mm max.
Marks: fully marked, as illustrated, including the pattern number 1246 to teapot, 1038 to creamer jug and 1427 to cups and saucers.
References: A rare design which we have not seen before. It does not appear to be recorded in available literature. Linthorpe pattern numbers as high as 2119 (c.1881) have been previously confirmed as designed by the innovative designer Christopher Dresser. Many confirmed Dresser designs do not carry his facsimile signature.
Condition: Excellent condition for general display but please note damages as follows: rim chip to two cups and associated hairline; two faint trace glaze hairlines to one cup; inside flange to teapot lid part broken at some point and restuck (illustrated). Much surviving Linthorpe art pottery is either damaged or has been restored. A good ceramic restorer could achieve successful, almost invisible, restoration of this wonderful example if required.
