1915 Keeling Losol Ware "Athole" Blue & White Lidded Pot / Dresser Box
#AD088: Staffordshire Dresser Box
This is a beautiful and dreamy old Edwardian era flow blue art nouveau English pottery potted lid, dresser or powder box marked Losol Ware in the "Athole" Pattern. It dates from the circa 1915 WWI or WW1 era, and features a stunning pink rose in Keeling's trademark blue and white pattern in early art deco or art nouveau fashion.
These Losol pieces are collectible and hard to find, especially the dresser boxes. Keeling & Co produced high quality earthenwares from 1886 to the 1930's at the Dale Hall Works, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England.
The mark on bottom of this Keeling Losol ladie's, ladies or lady's vanity piece reads:
Losol Ware, "Athole"
Keeling & Co Ltd.
Burslem, England (with a royal crown)
Note: Ltd was in use in their mark after 1909, and in general the collectible Losol Ware line was up and running from 1912-1936. This is a beautiful old English 20th century dresser box that we were happy to find. The pattern is named after Atholl, Athole or the Scottish Gaelic Athall in the Scottish Highlands, in the northern part of Perth and Kinross, Scotland.
