Item Overview

Description

Margaret Rey (British, 1911-2010) Scarab Beetle and Grasshopper vase, late 1930s impressed potter's monogram 35.5cm high. Illustrated: Jeffrey Jones, Studio Pottery in Britain 1900-2005, A & C Black Publishers Ltd., 2007, p.111. A noted pupil of William Staite Murray, Margaret Rey shared her studio with Sam Haile after she left the Royal College of Art (1927-1930) and was given a large solo exhibition at the Brygos Gallery in 1938. Following on from Staite Murray's example, Rey's larger pieces with bold designs were often given names and this vase presumably would have been one of those pieces and was probably from the Brygos Gallery exhibition.
