Martin Brothers Dish


Reference: 01068

Description: A unique Martin Brothers Art Pottery dish by Robert Wallace Martin, with carved, etched and impressed decoration. The Martin Brothers pottery was founded by the eldest of the group, Robert Wallace Martin (1843-1923), who had trained in sculpture at Lambeth School of Art and later at the Royal Academy of Art. 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. In 1877 they moved to Southall, where they made salt-glazed stoneware with Gothic Revival influences. The Martin Brothers became famous for their eccentric, grotesquely modeled 'Wally Birds', wheel-thrown and sculpted face jugs, vases. The company closed in 1915. Incised mark to base. c.1873-1874

Dimensions: D: 10cm (4")
