Newlyn was a small fishing village on the coast of Cornwall.  To give the fishermen something to do in the off-season, John Pearson, ex-craftsman at Ashbee's Guild of Handicrafts, helped to found a metalworking school there. Initially an attempt to bring additional revenue to the impoverished village, Pearson's efforts soon produced some of the most highly-prized, sough-after metalwork in England.  Drawing on their experience of the sea, the metalworkers produced vases, bowls, plaques, chargers and other types of hollowware, all embellished with marine motifs.  Indeed, some of the craftsmen were so skilled, and earned enough of a living at this type of work, they gave up fishing all together.  This panel would be beautiful framed.   Learn more about Newlyn metalwork
