Issued in 1929 (most likely) and originally called the 39 series, Diamond Arches is a twin pattern to Waffle and Comb. Garry Workman notes in his pattern sheets that it has been seen in citron, rosalin and flint, but obviously it appears in emerald green (as seen below) and could so could potentially be found in other contemporary post-merger period colours.
It is found in the following shapes:
- 8″ comport (#3970);
- 8.5″ salver (cake stand) (#3975);
- footed covered sweet dish (#3936);
- 4.5″ round (#3900), triangular (#3903) and square nappies (#3904) (note that these would have come from the same moulds as the round nappies with the sides flattened after being removed from the mould using a cup punty);
- 8.5″ salad in round (#3920), triangular (#3923) and square (#3924) shapes;
- covered sugar bowl (#3935);
- covered butter dish (with three handles) (#3940);
- 6.5″ salver ???
- one handled sweet dish available with and without a lid (#3937A)
- footed, covered sweet dish (#3936A);
- 1pt and 2pt (#3960) jugs;
- cream jug (also #3960); and
- tumbler (#3967).
Note that some items which clearly came from different moulds, because they were different sizes, have the same catalogue numbers, while other items which came from the same moulds have slightly different catalogue numbers, depending on the finish.
