Locke & Co. Porcelain

This porcelain was manufactured by Edward Locke at a small production facility he established in 1895 at Shrub Hill, Worcester in 1895. His wares closely followed the styles used at the Royal Worcester works. They included vases, potpourri bowls, urns and other decorative pieces, often with reticulated features. A pale yellow and/or buff ground was fequently used. Locke continued this operation into the 20th century when it was taken over by the Royal Worcester Porcelain Co sometime between 1904 and 1914.

Edward Locke used three marks for his wares: from 1895 to 1903, a printed “Locke & Co/Worcester” mark; from 1895 to 1900, a printed globe mark with three bands reading “Locke & Co/Worcester/England”; and from 1900 to close, a similar printed globe mark reading “Locke & Co Ltd/Shrub Hill Works/Worcester” with “England” printed below the globe.
