Superb Newlyn Copper Circa 1900 Arts & Crafts Ink Tray George Ernest Mildren For Sale

Superb Newlyn Copper Circa 1900 Arts & Crafts Ink Tray George Ernest Mildren

A truelysuperb, hand-crafted copper 8.5"Ink Trayfrom the Newlyn Workshops in Cornwall, made during the Arts & Crafts period, circa 1900-08. I'm dating this piecebetween 1900-1908 because ....

1It's not stamped and Stamping of Newlyn pieceswasfirst introducedin 1908 coming with the registration that year of the Newlyn Enamel Trade Mark.
2 Because I'm100% certainthis superb piecewas made by George Ernest Mildren (1884-1926) who was famous for producing small Newlyn copper pieces, that depicted distinctive, stylised lizards .... hence he'd probably be somewhere between 15-24 when he made this lovely piece.

Dimensions as follows ....

Length8.5 inchesor21.5 cm

Width 5 inches or 12.5 cm

Weight6.5ozs or183 grams

Newlyn Copper .....

Late in the 19th century the fishing industry in Cornwall was becoming unreliable as a source of income: bad weather and seasonal fluctuations brought enforced periods of inactivity. It was decided that an alternative means of employment could be gainedby training the unemployed fishermen to produce items in copper. The Class specialised in repousse' copper work and produced a wide range of domestic and decorative items. The school remained active for about28 years after its establishment in 1890. John Drew Mackenzie, an artist who settled at Newlyn was a key figure in setting up the Newlyn Industrial Class, assisted by the benefactor and local MP, Thomas Bedford Bolitho, and artists Reginald Dick, T.C. Gotch, Perry Craft and John Pearson. Other known artists who produced workfor Newlynincluded: Phillip Hodder, William Wright, William Pezzack, Tom Batten, John Payne Cotton, Herbert Dyer, Obed Nicholls, John Curnow, John Edgar Laity, George Ernest Mildren, Joe Pengelly and William Tonkin. The range of objects produced by the class included trays, mirrors and photograph frames, chambersticks, plates, plaques/chargers, boxes, bowls and coffee pots: designs typically featured fish, ships and other nautical themes. Basically what ended the original Newlyn was World War 1 (1914-1918) with the metal workers being called up to fight and the death of John Drew Mackenzie in July 1918.

If you're aNewlyn Coppercollector then this is a must have, quality piece to add to any collection. It's so unusual with the stylised lizard,four upturned corners for holding quills and a flatarea for a bottle of ink.It will be a real talking point amongst your friends.
