Title: Rye Pottery Trug

Reference: 01058

Description: A large Trug from Rye Pottery, showing great attention to detail. Pottery has been produced in Rye since mediaeval times, but what is now known as Rye Pottery was started at Cadborough near the end of the eighteenth century. Cadborough established the ?Hopware? design that is now recognized as traditional for Rye Pottery. In the second half of the nineteenth century the Bellevue Pottery opened in Rye, and by 1890 the Cadborough Pottery was swallowed by the thriving Bellvue Pottery. Bellvue was run by Frederick Mitchell until his death in 1875 and by his wife, Caroline, until Frederick Thomas Mitchell, their newphew, took over in the last decade of the nineteenth century. Incised mark to base.

Dimensions: L: 21cm (8.25") W: 15cm (6")

Price: £330

He set up his first workshop in the late 1860's, making terracotta sculpture. In 1873, he set up a new pottery with his brothers, Charles, Walter and Edwin Martin in Fulham.
