Yattendon Class copper jug


A really lovely example of a repousse copper jug made by the Yattendon Class, circa 1900.

This particular piece is in fantastic condition with very crisp and well defined repousse work. The sides of the jug are decorated with a design of fish above stylised waves. The designs made by the Yattendon Class from Berkshire were produced by Mrs Elizabeth Waterhouse or other members of the Waterhouse family. It is still one of my favourite metalworking classes associated with the Home Arts and Industries Association. 

This design, albeit with a different handle, was exhibited at the annual Home Arts and Industries Association exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall. It was one of a number of pieces illustrated in The Studio periodical in 1896 (Vol. 8, Page. 91).
