AE Gray & Co Ltd, Glebe Works, Mayer Street, Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. Half a dozen very interesting patterns, true to the type of design which has been specially cultivated by this house, were selected for exhibit. One of the best of these, for true simplicity of effect was the No (A)986, illustrated. This consisted of brown bands and brown dashes and green spots upon a yellow glaze.
Of the other patterns, one of them had leaves and berries in silver on a yellow glaze; another, pale yellow leaves and a grey shadow on ivory; another, a gold and silver check on ivory; another, water green bands with a design painted in two greens; and the last, a grey and matt silver design upon a grey band.
It must be acknowledged that modernity of outlook characterises the whole of these patterns.
