Pair of mid-century ETB Radford nut dishes with floral decoration
Auld Curiosities is delighted to bring you another fine example of the skilled work of ETB Radford. This offering is a pair of mid-century nut dishes with different patterns on each, against a plain white ground. The back-stamp acknowledges ETB Radford and that the decoration is hand-painted but no pattern number but there is a shape number of 17 – embossed on one dish and painted on another. Edward T B Radford 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. These dishes would come from that later period of his working life. Each dish has a maximum width of 4 3/8” (111mm) and a maximum length of 5 5/8” (143mm) while standing a maximum of 1 9/16" (44mm). Condition is superb as can be seen in the photographs.

Covid 19 may continue to ravage world-wide but Dunedin City and indeed Otago in New Zealand remains free of both the Delta and Omicron variants. However, today saw the Government react (perhaps sluggishly) to the Omicron variant leaking through the border controls that were in place. There is now active cases in both the North Island and the top of the South Island. While Dunedin remains free of the virus, it seems likely that we may face this challenge in the next couple of weeks. As always, Auld Curiosities will endeavour to ensure that any of items being stored and/or dispatched will present minimal risk to others.
If for any reason you find an item does not match the description (written or photographic) please contact Auld Curiosities by email within 7 days of the item arriving, to arrange return and refund.
Packaging and Postage
With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
