Newton School copper motto dish


A copper dish or tray with repousse foliate pattern and motto made by the Newton School of Metal Workers from a design attributed to John Williams, circa 1900.

A variation of this particular design appears in the Newton School design archive. The hand drawn design is unsigned but from the style it can safely be attributed to John Williams. The “pie crust” edge is commonly used by the Newton School in their designs.

The motto is taken from a 19th Century James Ballantine poem.
