I really like this design, I've had one in my collection for many years. A bold floral design with a great big flowerhead as favoured in this period, a hint of the art nouveau to come with some of the 'lazy floral' characteristics present in many asymmetric designs of the time. Four colours, a rather unusual bright yellow for the flowerhead, whilst yellow flowers are far from uncommon very few are so large or so intense. These would have been superb in iron fireplaces of the times for reflecting the fireglow, quite high relief to catch the reflections too in the brilliantly glazes.

Pattern number 24 so one of the first designs by Henry Richards its introduction will date from 1901, these made a little later around 1910 judging by the grip pattern.
