Beautiful Fruit Bowl or Serving Dish from Hornsea Pottery in the Saffron pattern created by John Clappison, who was the most notable of the designers.
Based in the coastal town of Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the pottery was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson and partly funded by a butcher friend, Philip Clappison, father of John Clappison. The pottery flourished until 2000 when it went into administration.
Approximate dimensions : 7.25" / 185mm wide
3.5 / 90mm high
There is an area inside the bowl at the bottom, of clean underglaze crazing which is mentioned for accuracy.
In very good vintage condition, this lovely item will enhance any collection of Hornsea, or perhaps start a new one ?
A beautiful piece.
