Tygs are always popular, but this one is by the master of sgraffito work. Three simple but delightful studies of a horse’s head – done exquisitely!
A very early 6.5in (16cm) Doulton Lambeth tyg by Hannah Barlow. It has the oval impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the date 1874 included. It is signed in monogram by Hannah Barlow, and numbered 484. The tyg weighs 1200g.
A ‘fleabite’ chip to the top rim has been restored professionally and invisibly. It now looks ‘perfect’! There is a discolouration to the top rim that is NOT the restored chip mentioned above – this mark is 100% original!
