15th British Industries Fair
P&GR 3.30 p79 (Fair review):
As usual Messrs AE Gray & Co Ltd had a stand which, in itself, was an exhibition of good artistic taste as well as originality in design. On the ware shown all the decorations were new since last year. Among the pretty display on the central table of unpolished and unstained oak there was some cream coloured ware with remarkable colour effects in orange, yellow and green, and some very neat blue-body ware. On one of the corner stands there was an elaborate and artistic pattern, 8625. In other parts, neatly arranged, there was a good variety in gay colours of all kinds of hand-decorated ware, including table-centres, electric lamps, vases, and toy tea sets, as well as utility ware.
PG 4.30 p606 (Fair review):
AE Gray & Co Ltd, Glebe Works, Mayer Street, Hanley, showed decorated services in both china and earthenware, on distinctive lines, decorated for the most part in free style and in gay colourings which can best be described as modernistic. Mr Gray's stand was visited by Her Majesty the Queen, who commented favourably upon some designs executed in platinum, and particularly interesting to Her Majesty was a morning set on show, a replica of one that was presented to Princess Helena Victoria upon a recent visit to the Staffordshire Potteries.
