Conrad Dressler (1856-1940) studied at the Royal College of Art completing his studies in Paris. Encouraged by John Ruskin, he worked as a potter with Harold Rathbone and later with William De Morgan. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1883. It has been suggested that this bust depicts the poet Algernon Swinburne.
