   Pair of English stoneware planters


 

Description:
Large pair stoneware “Poppy Pots” on plinths, with swags of fruits and poppies and lug handles. English early 20th century. Attributed to the Compton Potters Art Guild. Although not stamped the modeling would definitely suggest that these were made by the Compton Pottery as an identical model appears in the Potters Art Guild Catalogue. Height: 34" Diameter: 30" The Compton Potters Art Guild was established in 1895 by Mary Watts, wife of portrait painter and sculpture George Watts and produced decorative terra cotta work in the village of Compton (near Guilford) England. Originally organized to produce decoration for a chapel, the pottery continued production of architectural items and garden ornament after completion of the chapel in 1896. Liberty & Company as well as other leading designers of the times, including Archibald Knox, engaged the firm to produce their designs.
