Mid-century Alfred Meakin small geometric grey pattern shallow bowl
This bowl dates from 1973 and reflects a taste for all-over pattern and a simple, rim-less form of bowl, that was established in the 1950s and 1960s. It would be great for serving snacks matched with other mid-century tableware.
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.
