ETB Radford Cabinet Plate
Vintage cabinet plate from a small collection of ETB Radford pottery. The plate has, as seen in the photographs, lovely clean lines and superbly balanced colours. In its day, it would probably have occupied pride of place in a china cabinet, perhaps venturing out for limited use on the best of occasions. The earliest reference that I can find for Edward T B Radford was when he worked as a pottery artist initially for Pilkington’s until WW1 interrupted his life, along with so many others. He fought with the rank of Captain in the 19th Middlesex Regiment and was awarded a Military Cross for his actions at Passchendaele. After the war he returned to pottery and worked for HJ Wood in the 1920’s. He appears to have operated under the umbrella of HJ Woods at the Alexandra Pottery in Burslem, producing the distinctive floral art and decoesque pottery in his own name between the 1930’s and 1948 when he retired.
This is pattern CP so one of the earlier from Edward Radford and interestingly without the sponged backgrounds so often seen in Radford pottery. Hand painted flowers and the elegant lines that his pottery seem to always show. The plate has a diameter is approximately 8 11/16" (221mm) and is offered without any flicks, chips or cracks. Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We do this to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair.
