Notes

This pattern, like pattern 4401, has been derived from an early-to-mid-nineteenth century lustre pattern, as shown by the contemporary bone china cup & saucer in the foreground of the first two images. The simple style relating to pattern 9525 gives rise to the appellation ‘primitive’ or ‘cottage style’ of pink/purple lustre decoration. The Shire Publications book Lustreware by Michael Gibson (ISBN 0747803978) is a useful detailed resource.

If the amount of 9525 pots seen at auction and on auction sites is anything to go by, this must have been a popular pattern, possibly buoyed by sales in North America. It has been recorded on a wide range of both useful and ornamental ware such as tea sets and coffee sets, jugs, plates, preserve pots, lidded boxes and tiles (usually for teapot stand use).

Various pots have been recorded which have an Old Castle backstamp, rather than a Gray’s Pottery one, a further indication of the design’s popularity in North America where the former backstamp was in use.

A7833 appears to be identical, as is A8321 but this latter design is finished in BC lustre, rather than pink/purple.
