Hugh Wallis (1871-1943) studied art at the Herkomer Art School, in the early 1890s. He became a coppersmith in 1900 opening his own studio in Cheshire and registering his first mark with the Chester Assay Office in 1905. His pieces have distinctive inlays and patterned rims, as seen on this plate with a beautifully proportioned chequered rim.
In very good vintage condition, some light patina to the metal and wooden stand.
