Catalogue Note

According to Bernard Bumpus in te-sur-Pâte,The Art of Ceramic Relief Decoration, 1849-1992, p. 102, Lawrence Birks, Frederick Alfred Rhead's close friend and Alboin Birk's cousin, is first mentioned in Mark Louis Solon's personal notebooks in 1872, although it is most likely he started as an apprentice to him along with Henry Sanders and Rhead as early as 1870. Bumpus also states on p. 166 that there were no references to Birks's in the trade after 1917 but he is to be credited for making "true pâte-sur-pâte" for a long period.
