Highly indicative of the work of Christopher Dresser during the19th century, these three items of silver plate on porcelain, in their overall, pared down, minimalistic design, assert Dresser's favourite dictum: Truth - Beauty - Power in every respect and detail. All three have a late 19th century Coalport porcelain mark. Only the silver plated rim on the teapot has the Hukin & Heath stamped mark. Please read the condition report as there is damage or wear to all three items. The teapot is 4 1/4 inches tall with the lid closed.
Now hailed as one of the first (if not the first) to forward freelance industrial design as a recognised career option, Dresser lit up the Victorian period with his astonishing designs for multiple industries - from Anaglypta wallpaper to pared down silver plate to grotesque'Old Bogey' illustrations to fine porcelain and pottery that brought Greek bronze age antiquity (and more) back to the mantlepiece - Dresser stunned, enthralled and shocked the Victorians in equal measure, and made a good living while doing so and turned design into a respected profession rather than the factory afterthought it was then.
