A do like this design, very stylish with unique flowerheads in the top corners. Kind of looks like two designs combined, a more typical tulip design overlaying a more unique design enconpassing a plain centre. Reminds me of Marsden indeed by the design only I would have guessed Marsden first and Richards maybe third or fourth. Unfortunately many folks of all kinds, from 'expert' authors to dealers and collectors, even museum staff and curators get sucked in to attributing to artist or company purely by virtue of design without any reference to source material, records, pattern numbers and so on. Whilst we all make some mistakes a some people make a lot of mistakes, uncritical writers repeat mistakes and so it goes and grows.

It's quite rare this the first offered for sale by us although I have had one in my collection for many years. Furthermore I can only recall seeing it in monochrome green, in a good array of colours it would be absolutely fabulous.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed England and registration number.
