This large copper tray was hand beaten by John Pearson (1859-1930), a master craftsman in the British Arts and Crafts movement. A nice feature, and one rarely seen, is the twist added to the handles-perhaps to give the carrier a better grip as it is a large, heavy tray. Pearson stamped his mark onto the back at both ends. The tray measures 647 mm (25.5 inches) in length, including the handles, and 393 mm (15.5 inches) in width. It weighs 2.8 kgs, just over 6 lbs. It is in very good condition and would date from around 1900. John Pearson was a founding member of the Guild of Handicrafts along with Charles Ashbee in 1888, but by 1892 he had left (or been dismissed from) the Guild. He then moved to Newlyn in Cornwall, where he taught at the local industrial school. In around 1900 he moved back to London. His works were sold by both Liberty and William Morris.
