Yattendon Class copper dish
A copper dish or charger made by the Yattendon Class from Berkshire, circa 1900.
The dish has very attractive repousse decoration in a flowing vine leaf pattern in light relief. Most of the designs by the Yattendon Class came from Mary Waterhouse or other members of the Waterhouse family and they almost always used nature as their inspiration. The piece is unmarked which is typical of the Yattendon metalworkers but the distinctive background hammer marks allow me to attribute this piece to the Yattendon Class with a high degree of certainty.
Dimensions: 12″ in diameter and 1″ deep
Condition: Some faint scratches and slightly darker spots on the patina
