This antique flow blue pickle or relish dish was made by W.H. Grindley & Co., a pottery founded in 1880 in Tunstall, England, by William Harry Grindley. The oval dish has a scalloped blue rim, embossed with curlicues and arabesques, with a pattern of blue poppies on each side and each end. The mark on the reverse is also in flowing blue ink; the pattern name "Le Pavot" {"the poppy" in French} is on the top arch, with "W.H. Grindley England" at the bottom. In the center is a drawing of the earth surmounted by a steamer boat, flanked by the words "TRADE MARK." Underneath is "Rd. No." {Registration Number} 277089, which on the table of English registry marks for decorative designs means that it was registered in the year 1896. Below that number are the initials " F B" which stand for Flow Blue.

The dish is 9 inches long, 4 5/8 inches at the widest and 1 inch high. There are two small chips, both thankfully on the back. One is to the right of the mark, on the edge and one is at the end of the piece {you can see both in photograph #4}. On the front is a dot of brown discoloration, under the glaze, done at the time of manufacture. It's in lovely condition otherwise, the glaze uncrazed and the blue fresh and vivid. This pattern is not easily found and is a treasure for the flow blue collector.
