Footnotes

  • C.F.Hürten studied at the Municipal School of Art in Cologne but moved to Paris in his late teens. A exceptional ceramic painter, Hürten joined the Copeland factory in Stoke on Trent in 1858, lured by a salary of £320 per year and his own studio. Copeland first exhibited his magnificent flower painting at the International Exhibition in London in 1862. On this occasion a large vase was purchased by the South Kensington Museum, now the Victoria and Albert Museum, and this established Hürten's reputation as one of the greatest ceramic artists in Britain. He remained at Copelands until the late 1890s.
