Pilkingtons Royal Lancastrian Ceramics
Until 31 December 2012
This Lancashire pottery produced ceramics internationally recognized for their quality and beauty, and which were sold through leading retailers such as Liberty of London and Tiffany of New York. The display, consisting of over 40 items, looks at the company’s delicate lustre ware; the decoration of each piece was individually designed and carried out by a small team of exceptional artists. Original material from the Chambers Archive at Lancaster University’s Peter Scott Gallery will be displayed alongside ceramics from Towneley Hall Art Gallery & Museum’s extensive Pilkington’s collection.
