This bowl probably dates from the late-1950s or early-1960s and shows the influence of the Midwinter Stylecraft range (such as Jessie Tait's Zambesi design) in both in the design of the shape and the pattern.  

  • Alfred Meakin established his pottery in Tunstall in 1874 while his brothers James and George founded J&G Meakin in Hanley (both part of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire). Both firms were prolific tableware manufacturers through the 20th century and the two Meakin factory names are found on large numbers of ceramic pieces. Alfred Meakin Ltd's pieces were often influenced by the more innovative designs of factories such as Midwinter, Wedwood and later Portmeirion, but less often had the design names on the reverse.
