Pilkington Royal Lancastrian Pottery

Pilkington’s Tile & Pottery Co. was a manufacturer of ceramics based in Clifton, Greater Manchester; it was established in 1892 by the brothers Joseph and William Burton. They supervised the development of a wide range of new and unusual types of glaze, and began painting wares in the coloured lustres for which the company is famous. They employed many famous and talented designers of the time, including Charles Voysey, Walter Crane, Lewis F. Day, Gordon Forsyth and Richard Joyce – who made the pot pictured here.
