Gordon Forsyth joined Pilkington’s as the head painter in 1905, a position he held until 1916, when he left to join the Royal Flying Corps, returning again in 1919. In 1920 he left to become Superintendent of Art Instruction for the Stoke on Trent School of Art.
During his tenure at Pilkington’s he contributed greatly to the development of the painters and in turn to the success of the factory.
This vase is loosely based on a Persian design, which is characteristic of Forsyth’s work.
