A lovely vintage white crescent shaped semi-porcelain dish by Henry Alcock Pottery.
It has a scalloped or fluted style edge with a swirl design reminiscent of a shell. There is a chip on the corner edges and crazing in the glaze. This can be seen in the photographs. It is also stamped on the base with ‘Semi-Porcelain; Henry Alcock & Co Ltd, Cobridge, England’.
The firm of Henry Alcock was started in 1861 at the Elder Pottery in Cobridge formerly operated by John Alcock. The firm continued at Cobridge until 1910 when the Clarence Works at Stoke were engaged. The firm then continued at Stoke under the name ‘The Henry Alcock Pottery’ until 1935.
