Ashtead Potters "gazelles" plates

Ashtead "Gazelles" plates (P6) and charger (P?)

Designed by David Furse. The charger is unusual in that there are very few plain black (r) Ashtead wares. The smaller dessert plates are far more common and can be found in other colours including Cinnamon (t), Celadon (d), and Apple green (o) in addition to the Jade Green (v) and Royal Blue (c) shown here. Another variant of this plate is covered dish P9. This is a slightly deeper "gazelles" plate, with a lid, the handle of which is in the shape of a hare.

Ashtead Potters covered jar X29

finished in powder blue glaze (f). This piece is very "Art Deco". The significance of the camel motif is not know although it looks similar to that found on "Camel" cigarettes. It is about 19cms tall.
