COOPER OR GORDON FORSYTH,
GRAY'S POTTERY ORANGES
PATTERN GLORIA LUSTRE JUG C.1923-28
lovely hand painted Gray's Pottery Gloria Lustre jug for that pretty
deco dresser space or
display niche. A wonderful early 1920s Staffordshire art deco gem with
a delightful deco Oranges
design. Highly desirable both in terms of British art pottery
collecting and display; it dates
from the Susie Cooper period of Staffordshire Art Deco production at
Gray's Pottery. Stylistically this design can be attributed to Susie
Cooper who was responsible for many of the Gray's Pottery Gloria Lustre
designs or to Gordon Forsyth who introduced the Gloria Lustre range. A
stunning rare piece in excellent condition."Antiques
Forsyth, influential artist with Royal
Lancastrian Art Pottery and Susie Cooper then as 'assistant" both had a
the design of Gray's Pottery Gloria Lustre wares. This important early
example may be the work
of Gordon Forsyth who introduced the range or Susie Cooper who was
directly involved in day to day design production. There are however
strong stylistic similarities to other known Susie Cooper
patterns which on balance lends weight to a Susie Cooper attribution
for this wonderful piece..
