A rare Eric Ravilious designed Travel Series oval platter, designed circa 1938, and manufactured by Wedgwood, circa 1954. Ravilious was killed in an air to sea rescue over Iceland in 1942 and his designs were not produced by Wedgwood until after the end of World War II. The design is produced with black transfer printed decoration and painted light blue highlights on a Windsor grey ground, featuring a train traveling under starry skies, surrounded by a geometric, Art Deco-inspired border.

We have several other platters from this series in stock.

Eric Ravilious was one of the greatest wood engravers of the 20th century and an important and highly successful British illustrator, printmaker and graphic designer. He studied at Eastbourne School of Art, and at the Royal College of Art, where he studied under Paul Nash and became close friends with Edward Bawden. He began his working life as a muralist, first coming to notice as an artist in 1924. Ravilious went on to become one of the best-known artists of the 1930s. He was the leading light of wood-engraving in England at that time, and undertook ceramic designs for Wedgwood. He also designed graphics for London Transport.
