Rare Upchurch Pottery Brush Pot


Reference: 03109

Description: A rare Upchurch Art Pottery footed brush pot, with side lugs. An early piece dating from the art deco period, 1920-35. Contrasting green running glaze decoration. Upchurch Pottery was founded in 1909 in Upchurch, between Rainham and Sittingbourne in Kent, by the Wakely brothers. Incised mark to base.

Dimensions: H: 14cm (5.5")

Additional Information: The Wakely brothers were local businessmen who wanted to add the manufacture of bricks, tiles and drainpipes to their other interests. In 1913, Edward Baker was hired to start producing art pottery, he quickly established the pottery, and within two years was exhibiting at major trade fairs. He experimented with glazes on shapes he designed himself, and Upchurch pottery soon became widely known and appreciated. Edward Spencer, who is mainly known for his design work with Martin Brothers, collaborated with Baker in formulating recipes for glazes. The pottery changed hands on a few occasions until it was bought by Edward Baker in 1953 and remained within the family until its closure in 1975.

Price: SOLD
