John Constable was a highly influential painter of landscapes and rustic life. He did most of his painting in his native Suffolk, England. He painted a large 6 foot image of the lock on the Stour River in 1824.

The Grindley pottery company was founded by William Harry Grindley at the Newfield Pottery, Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent in 1880. Earthenware and Ironstone China - particularly for the Canadian, United States, South American and Australian markets.
In 1891 the company moved to the Woodfield Pottery, Woodland Street, Tunstall.
During the 1930s, Grindley produced a series of earthenware products with images from Constable's works.
