Rosette

Found as Series 55 in the catalogues, Rosette is a sister pattern to Leaf Panels. Both issued in 1927, the pattern is found in flint, lettuce green, pastel blue and pastel green.

Available shapes were:

  • 9″ salver (#5575);
  • 8″ low salver (also #5575);
  • 8.5″ tall comport (#5570);
  • 7.5″ low comport plain rim (#5570) and crimped rim (#5571);
  • 1.5″ pint jug (#5560)
  • covered handled sugar bowls – two handled, smaller (#5533), larger more cylindrical with trophy handles (#5535)
  • a rose bowl (smaller round footed bowl designed to be used with a standard internal flower holder) (#5586);
  • a covered butter dish (round, higher domed lid, #5540);
  • a covered jam dish (flatter than the above, flatter lid, #5550);
  • an open sugar bowl (identical to the covered bowl but minus the lid #5532);
  • cream jug (#5560);
  • sandwich tray (#5517);
  • both 8″ and 10″ oval salad bowl (#5515);
  • 4.5″ nappy (#5500);
  • 8.5″ round salad bowl (#5520); and
  • 5.5″, 6.5″, 7.5″ and 8.5″ dishes (round bowls, #5510).

*The comport is found with either with a plain circular edge or a crimped edge. Both items came from the same mould with the crimping formed by hot working the edge after unmoulding and before annealing. This is true of all the bowls seen in both plain circular and crimped edges.
