The firm of Henry Wilkinson & Co. ceased to trade in 1892, after being purchased by Walker & Hall. As the maker’s hallmark on the piece was registered in London in 1892, this is the very precise date for this piece.

The design is heavily influenced by Dr Christopher Dresser’s simplistic form borrowed from Asian designs, and foreshadows  the styles of the 20th century.
