Doulton Lambeth salt glazed stoneware dish by Agnete Hoy, 1952-1956
Size: 20.8 cm (8 inches) in diameter. Condition: Excellent condition, no chips cracks or restoration. This dish is the work of Agnete Hoy, the primary artist at the Doulton Lambeth studios in its final few years before its closure in 1956. Hoy, Danish by birth, had studied at the famous Copenhagen School of Art and worked at Bullers in Stoke on Trent when she first came to England, moving to Doulton in 1952. Her work fused some of Doulton’s famous techniques with her Scandinavian influence, and this dish is a good example. The simple design and muted tone belie considerable technical artistry in the dish. The sgraffito border on the inside of the dish together with a simple band around the outside, has a slightly different slip fifinsh before the overall salt glaze firing, which results in a lifting of the whole design. The salt glaze finish achieved is lustrous and refined. On the base are the impressed Doulton Lambeth mark, Agnete Hoy’s impressed signature, an impressed number 5 and two incised assistant’s marks.
