This is another pretty piece of Victorian Scottish pottery - made by Robert Heron & Sons / Methven Pottery / Links Pottery, Kirkcaldy.
It is one of a small group of harder-to-find lidded storage canisters which I have for sale.
This one is a more unusual pattern with its big blousy purple and yellow flowers
Dimensions: Overall height from base to top of lid knop is 5 1/2 inches. The main body section is 4 inches in diameter with a height of 4 1/4 inches.
The weight unpacked is 500 grams.
It is in good antique condition with no chips or cracks. There is some fine craquelure to the main body - evident only on close inspection - and the base pot has discoloured slightly - but again not so noticeable - but really that is the only issue - which is nothing really for a rarer pot of this age.
These do not appear on the market that often - and this is reflected in my listing price - please see my other ones in my store
Robert Methven Heron was the owner of the Fife Pottery in Kirkcaldy. He introduced a new pottery range called Wemyss Ware in 1882.
It is certainly a very fresh hand-painted pattern. Again, this plate has no issue marks or pattern details on the base etc but it is consistent with designs and patterns regularly used on a variety of other Kirkcaldy wares.
