J&G Meakin (England) 'Rosa' from the Sol range, 10.5" Covered Vegetable Dish
The history of J&G Meakin can the traced back to the 1850s with the manufacturer of earthenware at the Eagle Pottery, and the company remained in the Meakin family up until 1968. Meakin and Midwinter Potteries subsequently merged and the combined company became part of the Wedgwood Group in 1970.
J&GMeakin were one of the first British Potters to experiment with Art Deco shapes through the 1930s and this focus on modern designs and shapes followed during the post-war period with the introduction of the Studio and Horizon shapes. These shapes were heavily influenced by Russel Wright, the American industrial designer, famous for his American Modern ceramic tableware.
