Description : This artefact is a Jardiniere for house plants. The Jardiniere is made of ceramic that has been glazed a pale green. It is wide at the top narrowing towards the base. The main body of the Jardiniere has been decorated with a diamond pattern that has been made to look like it was quilted. The lip of the Jardiniere is decorated with a wreath of leaves that run the entire circumference of the pot. On one side is a cast of a bow that gives the appearance of being made of ribbon. The bow extends from the lip to the bottom of the Jardiniere. The bottom has a maker's mark that consists of the word "McCoy" over "USA.
Commentaires : Though this Jardiniere is from the estate of Sir Robert Bond, former Prime Minister of Newfoundland, it was brought to the estate some point after his death in 1927. This Jardiniere which is known as the 'Leaves and Diamonds" pattern was not produced by the Nelson McCoy Pottery Company until the 1950's. Furthermore the marker's mark on the item was not used by the company prior to 1940, and was in use until the 1960's. The Nelson Pottery Company was established in Roseville, Ohio in 1910 under the name Nelson McCoy Sanitary and Stoneware Company. In 1919 they amalgamated with eleven other companies to form the American Clay Products Company. The American Clay Products Company folded in 1926 and the Nelson McCoy company set about restabilising its name by expanding into decorative pottery. In 1933 the company simplified its name to Nelson McCoy Pottery Co. The company was operated solely by the McCoy family for 57 years, at which point it was sold in 1967 to another company, though the son of the founder stayed on as head and the company retained its name. In 1985 McCoy retired and the company was sold again and the name changed to Designer Accents of New Jersey.
Fonctions : This Jardiniere is from the Whitbourne estate known as The Grange. The estate was owned by Sir Robert Bond.
