From Colclough China here is a beautiful, almost squared plate in the Ivy Leaf pattern which was introduced in the 1940s. Sprigs of ivy decorate the pure white ground. Richly gilded to the rim and tab 'handles'. Minor rubbing only.
Colclough - one of the Staffordshire potteries - was founded in 1890 by an ex-Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, Herbert J. Colclough. Herbert loved his pottery and is reputed to sometimes stay up all night next to the kilns, so that he could be the first to see new designs when they emerged. In the 1930s Colclough was the first company to produce fine bone china which was sold by the piece, thus ruling out the need to purchase large sets all in one go.
