P&GR 3.29 p77 (Fair review):
AE Gray & Co Ltd, Glebe Works, Hanley. A special feature here was the bizarre patterned coffee services, etc. somewhat Cubist in type, with blobs of colour and streaks, with the blues, greens and reds violently contrasted. Quieter in tone was a range of en-suite ware, on grey-blue body, with soft yet fresh effects of colour with hand-painted centre sprays. The black and silver lustre border treatment, with centre conventional spray, in coffee, tea, and dinner ware, showed sound decorative planning. The decorative plates were also good in this respect. There were some admirable shapes in jugs on an ivory body, with well balanced bright freehand-painted patterns.
