Glaze effects at the 1904 Graves exhibition.
   The Graves exhibition was Pilkington's first commercial exhibition and marked the start of pottery production. The exhibition met with huge critical acclaim and 14 pieces were acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum on the recommendation of Walter Crane.

    Donations to other national museums followed and newspaper, journal and trade appreciations followed. Whilst expensive at the time these pieces are now inexpensive to acquire and for some collectors of Pilkington's are more sought after than their lustre productions.

    What is shown here is just a sample of these fantastic glazes.
