A superb design, light and elegant yet unrestrained art nouveau and in beautiful soft colours. A rare design, finding a good one has been somewhat of a quest.

I had one in the same colours in my collection for about fifteen years, condition was a bit rough, wear to the outline and glaze, chips to the rim but I couldn't find a better example. Then a good condition but lesser colours to my taste example came along and so the first found a new home. Finally a small group in this colourway, which is colourway number one, came along so I have a nice one to display.

It is the kind of design that one would think would have been popular and it likely would have been had it been introduced when art nouveau was thriving in the early to mid edwardian era but this, by the pattern number was introduced sometime around WWI, probably around 1915, when art nouveau was well passed its peak and the austerity of wartime was prevelant. They may be as many as a thousand art nouveau designs from Richards alone which are very rarely found being from the period 1912 to the late 1920s when plain and frugal was the order of the day.

Verso near perfectly clean, embossed England, painted pattern number.
