The Compton Pottery
The Compton Potters' Arts Guild, was established by Mary Seton Watts (d.1938), the wife of the Symbolist and portrait painter and sculptor George F.Watts (d.1904), producing decorative terracotta work in the village of Compton, near Guildford in 1895. The school was organised to produce terracotta decoration for a cemetary chapel that was completed the following year and continued to produce commercial pieces. The factory produced architectural items and planters such as those offered here and engaged the services of leading designers such as Archibald Knox (1864-1833), it was also a supplier to Liberty's.
