King of Wakely & Wheeler and B.J. Colson. Maker’s mark: Harold Stabler.  Measurements: Height 5.8 cm. Diameter 50 cm.

The approach to the manufacture of this dish of associating craftsmen and machinery, together with the angular stamped ornament in the ‘Chinese Manner’ (which Stabler made his own) show his ability to combine modernity with tradition in keeping with the demand of new industrial art.
