Yattendon School copper charger

Description

A rare copper charger made by the Yattendon School, circa 1895.

The charger has a flowering fruits pattern typical of designs by Elizabeth Waterhouse and the hand hammering has the distinctive Yattendon pattern. The back has a typical pen signature and design number. Unfortunately the signature can’t be made out clearly and does not look to be a documented Yattendon maker. 

The charger can just be made out in a picture of the Yattendon village shop where the School’s works were sold. The image is shown in The Studio 1896, Volume 8, page 92 and the charger is resting on the floor to the left of the picture.
