Rice Dish

Description Provenance Credit
Description William De Morgan was a designer, potter, and novelist who became a pivotal figure in the English Arts and Crafts Movement, which was inspired by the ideals of the Socialist William Morris. Intrigued with the iridescent sheen obtained by firing silver in making stained glass (his first field of artistic endeavor), De Morgan used a similar technique to decorate ceramic tiles. His most characteristic designs are schematized, sometimes grotesque birds, animals, and flowers recalling the work of William Morris. This dish is signed with the initials of the decorator Charles Passenger.
Provenance Warren Baker [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Mrs. Arthur J. Gutman, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 2002, by gift.
Credit Gift of Mrs. Arthur J. Gutman, 2002
