Over the life of the company, Gray’s Pottery produced a wide range of resist lustre designs (see the website section Patterns, Classification, Lustre, Copper lustre).
The 1926 pattern number 7252 is an example of an early silver resist pattern and A8669 continues the tradition.
Several silver resist patterns were duplicated in copper/bronze lustre: for A8669 it was A8670.

Items recorded include some pieces with a Gray’s Clipper backstamp and some with the Gray’s Heal’s backstamp.

The last image is of a shallow lidded box, usually considered to be a box for cigarettes.

A pattern sold by the London retailer Heal & Son.
