Pair of C H Brannam Vases

 
   

Reference: 01750

Description: A pair of C H Brannam's art pottery vases, blue glaze with Carp design, made for Liberty's. Brannam's was originally started in 1847 by Thomas Brannam after he had worked for some years, as a potter, in Barnstaple, Devon. The company originally made utility wares such as floor tiles and sewage pipes. The name most usually associated with Brannam is that of Charles Hubert Brannam, Thomas's son, born 1855. Charles was artistically inclined, and after many years trying, managed to persuade his father, in 1879, to let him experiment with the production of art pottery at their Litchdon Street works. In the following decade a London outlet was found for the wares, which were known as Royal Barum Ware, and the company soon established an enviable reputation. It is true to say that they were patronised by the crowned heads of Europe, and that included Queen Victoria. Fine wares continued to be produced well into the twentieth century, but after C H Brannam's death in 1937 the emphasis moved away from art pottery. Makers mark "C H Brannam, Barum, N Devon" on base. c. 1898 - 1914

Dimensions: H: 20cm (8") D: 10cm (4")
