Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    The Eileen Young Collection.

    The bowl was purchased directly from Hans Coper, the mark is an early version that he used while sharing Lucie Rie's studio in Albion Mews between 1946 and 1958. Eileen Young frequently visited Lucie at that time and it was on one of those visits that she spotted the bowl and insisted on buying it. It was not originally for sale, Coper had merely been using it in the studio to mix materials.
