Carlton Ware Walking Ware Biscuit Barrel and Lid (Sold)

Stock No. 287 

Here is a scarce Carlton Ware / Lustre Pottery Walking Ware Biscuit Barrel, designed by Roger Michell for CarltonWare and Lustre Pottery. This is one of the larger pieces designed for the range in the 1970s and examples are now thin on the ground.
This particular one was used for the photograph in the book "Walking Ware, a Collectors Guide" by Julia Michell (cf. page 28 no. 11 in the Design List).
Condition is very good with some unobtrusive general crazing and a light stain near the top on one side and 2 narrow strips of darker staining on the front bottom rim (see pic 1 above), and one small chip to the inner rim of the lid not affecting display.
Marked to the base with the early "walking cup" backstamp (ibid. see page 62 fig. 9).
