Pattern Numbers A1000 - A1249
A1000 – Coffee Pot, Cup and Saucer, Cream and Sugar in the Burford shape with “Melody” litho pattern. The roses are not hand coloured in this pattern.
A1001 – Tea Cream, Teacup and Saucer and Soup bowl in the Gadroon shape with “Melody” litho pattern.
A1003 – A1009 A series of service plates in the Edale shape with Ellis centres. Above are the cobalt, maroon, green and salmon versions. The last image is of a plate with a golden fawn ground which is not listed in the pattern book. Described as having a sanded gold and brown printed border below the rim, this does not appear in any of these examples. I presume that it was decided that the plates looked better with just a line and dentil. A1003 was gilt by Constance Clark. Do see her blog page.
A1010 – Burford shape plate with the Cotswold (Capper Rataud) litho border. Gold edge. This is a version of A615 “Flowered Border” but on the Burford shape. A1012 – “Windsor” Burford shape teacup and saucer with posie litho sprays scattered over the embossment. The roses are hand painted. Very easily confused with A945 “Ashby” which has a single posie spray. A1017 – A Vine shape plate with scattered posie sprays as “Windsor”. The roses are also hand painted and there is a gold edge.
A1018 – A1062 A series of eleven different patterns with four ground variations – cobalt, maroon, Montreal green and salmon. These mostly appear on teacups and saucers in the Elizabeth shape or on coffee cups and saucers in the Chelsea/Ely shape. I have also seen bread and butter plates and a teapot. Most of these have been acquired from the US or Canada, and I suspect therefore that this range was aimed returning servicemen. Decorated ware was not readily available in the UK because of the Board of Trade restrictions on sales in the home market which ended in 1952.
A1066 – Teacup and saucer in the Heraldic shape and the pattern is also entitled “Heraldic” It was produced in white and gold and in three colour variations, blue, red and green. It was available in both dinner ware and tea ware. Personal monograms or crests could be added (see UK Commissions for examples). A1066 Variant – White and gold Heraldic with the addition of a Garnett centre and St James gold sprays. A1067 – (Mazarine) blue version. A1067 Variant – Flower spray added. A1068 – Heraldic Maroon. The gilding on the embossment took about three hours to apply by hand on a single plate - (Betty Wherry 2017). It is therefore difficult to see how this pattern could now be produced commercially.
A1068 Variants – The first example above has an Ellis centre. The next two images show different Garnett centres with St James gold sprays. A1069 – (Sian) green version of Heraldic. A1070 - Posie with scattered flower sprays as A1012 “Windsor” but on the Heraldic shape.
A1070 Variant – A version of A1070 but with Ellis sprays. In the version shown in the second image the flower sprays are asymmetrical. A1075 “Regency”. Silver shape white and gold. The two variants shown have Ellis sprays with the second including St James gold sprays around the rim.
A1076 – Burford shape teacup and saucer. The pattern is printed in grey. The roses are hand enamelled in pink and the flowers and centres in blue green. A1078 – Listed under the Portman shape this version is in the Plain shape. Red Star of Eden in the centre with thick gold band and line to the rim, and line at the shoulder. A1079 “Golden Scroll” – Ely shape plate with printed and hand gilt scrolls. A1081 – “Royal Bouquet” Shown as a series of small flower sprays arranged in panels around the rim of a plate, I have yet to find an example, but the same sprays appear on the above image of the bottle opener. This pattern was clearly suited to small items, and so far I have only seen it on china handled cutlery. The roses were hand enamelled.
A1082 “Claremont” – The first example of a piece in the Boston shape. Teacup and saucer with pattern printed in grey and then enamelled in blue green. Leaves and spots in silver. Ungilt. A note in the pattern book indicates that the pattern was subsequently applied as a lithograph. A1090 -“Paradise Maroon” – Heraldic shape cup and saucer. The pattern was printed in grey. The birds and flowers were then painted to prevent the ground from adhering in these areas. The maroon ground was then applied up to the embossment and the pattern overprinted in raised colour. The embossment was gilt by hand. A1091 – Boston shape cup and saucer with Derby Star of Eden centre. The panels and centre are in turquoise. Litho star centre with printed edge pattern. Gold edge hand gilt. A1092 – “Countess” – Boston shape plate with blue panels on rim. Ellis centre with rose painted. Gold printed rim pattern and edge hand gilt.
A1093 – Boston shape plate. It has a gold printed border pattern known as “Magdalena”, a pattern (number 766) which dates back to C1880. A1094 – Boston shape with litho gold "Gloria" strawberry sprays on rim and gold spray in centre.
A1100 – “Bali” Here are shown versions in the Ely/Chelsea, Queen Ann and Boston shapes. Originally entered into the book as “Formosa” this name was crossed out. The blue was printed and the rest of the pattern lithographed in red and gilt.
A1101 – As A1078 but with a turquoise coloured centre. A1102 – As A1092 “Countess” but without the Ellis centre. A1103 – “Astoria” Boston shape with printed bead pattern, handspotted in blue green. No gilding to edge. This plate is not marked as such but fits the description. It is crossed out in the pattern book and marked as “withdrawn”. A1104 – Boston shape. “Gloria” pattern printed in gold with raised gold spots. Pattern and edge gilt by hand.
A1107 – “Rougemont” A revival of the “Magdalena” pattern. Litho print and gold edge. The first two images show a coffee pot and sugar box in the Boston shape followed by a breakfast cup and saucer in the Queen Ann shape, an Edinburgh shape coffee cup and saucer and a teacup and saucer in the Duesbury shape.
A1108 – Boston shape with printed gold “Gloria” pattern and beading at shoulder.

A1120 – “Pinxton Roses”. Silver shape teacup and saucer. A1121 – Boston shape version of A378 without the celadon ground. A1122 – Boston shape teacup and saucer with a “Magdalena” border. The pattern book lists a gold edge which is lacking in this example. A1123 – Heraldic shape. Ground colour (here celeste) to embossment, with printed paradise birds in gold.
