British Museum Acquires Work by Jennifer Lee

Erskine, Hall & Coe is pleased to announce that two works by acclaimed British ceramicist Jennifer Lee have been donated to the British Museum.

These works, Dark speckled, coloured band, tilted rim and Pale speckled, asymmetric, tilted rim, both made in 1984, were given to the museum by an anonymous donor and will be on display until the end of October 2016. They may be viewed in the museum’s 20th century Europe gallery located in room 48.

The pieces were included in a large collection consisting of glassware, ceramics, metalwork, woodwork, basketry, jewellery, clocks and watches from across Europe, all of which was gifted to the Department of Britain, Europe and Prehistory. Also included in the collection are works by some of the most distinguished potters working in Britain, including Lucie Rie, Alison Britton, Jacqueline Poncelet, Gordon Baldwin, Walter Keeler, Julian Stair and Martin Smith. The ceramic gifts help enable the museum to illustrate ceramic production in Britain from prehistory to the present day.

As the collection comprises nearly one thousand pieces, the works within it will be on rotating display. Jennifer Lee’s pots are viewable through October, and will be on display again in the future.

Further details of these works by Lee may be found in the British Museum’s online catalogue, here.
