AE Gray & Co, Glebe Works, Mayer Street, Hanley, at stand G38, presented a specially good show of neat hand-painted patterns in tea and dinner ware. They had a number of designs of particular merit offered at distinctly moderate prices. A pattern which elicited a good deal of interest consisted of a wreath of nasturtiums in red and yellow colouring, supplemented by green leafage. This pattern was particularly attractive, and elegant though simple.
The patterns, in the main, were in the form of borders, leaving plenty of the white body of the ware uncovered. They had also a very good line in [hand-painted nursery ware, introducing a very simple decorative treatment of owls, storks etc], the subjects being rendered in such an elementary style that they cannot but be readily appreciated by the youngest child. The exhibit of this house, at whatever exhibition they elect to support, is always a feature, and it fully lived up to its reputation on this occasion.
