Eric Ravilious, Wedgwood plate, Travel series, Sailing
This Wedgewood plate was originally designed by Eric Ravilious in 1938. Following delays caused by World War II, sadly in which Eric Ravilious lost his life, the ‘Travel’ series of plates was finally introduced in 1952.
The Wedgwood ‘Travel’ series is one of a delightful range of that depicts, trains, buses, aeroplanes balloons and sailing boats.
The designs Ravilious produced were first sketched in pencil and wash and then transferred by the craftsmen and women at Wedgwood onto a wonderful range of jugs, plates, bowls, mugs and more. This process and the work he produced for Wedgwood is fully explained in an excellent book ‘Ravilious & Wedgwood‘.
This Travel plate has a beautiful image of a sailing boat in ‘Windsor’ grey fine earthenware. The under-glaze is printed in black and enamelled in turquoise. The back is stamped with the Wedgwood marks.
Size: diameter: 25cm, 9.75 inches.
