AE Gray & Co Ltd - tableware and ornamental goods with distinctive decorations, largely consisting of hand-painted treatments - the leading speciality of this house - will again be on view, incorporating many new patterns. In fact, with the exception of their traditional style of silver lustre and copper lustre decorations in service plates and coffee ware for the USA and Canadian markets, all the tableware decoration on view will be new, none having yet been put on the market.
