This Autumn floral design is one of a set of 4 large Floral seasons dishes all manufactured from English bone china dishes featuring a pretty design of seasonal flowers to complement our seasonal mugs.
As a student Susan started to paint flowers from places she visited and over many years this extensive collection of plant studies became the basis of her floral library.
Susan, like her mother and sister, is a very keen gardener and her floral studies on both vellum and watercolour have become some of her most loved pieces of work.
Each dish depicts a beautiful array of English garden flowers taken from an original watercolour painted on vellum by Susan. The Autumn version which of course is current now features Croscosmia, Helenium, Rosehips, Tansy sedum, Blackberries, Golden Rod and Dahlias whilst the Winter version which would make a perfect Christmas gift features Winter Jasmine, Snowdrops, Helleborus, Garrya, Christmas Rose, Holly and Beriberis.
The piece is finished with a hand-painted complementary green rim and comes in an English made presentation box.
If you like Susan’s floral paintings you might be interested to see more of her work on our English bone china, such as the complementary Season’s Mugs and the lovely Floral Birthday Trinket Boxes – one design for each month.
All our china is hand-made by one of our skilled china makers in the historic Longton district of Stoke-on-Trent and hand decorated by our Longton workshop. Longton was one of the original five towns that formed the potteries and was particularly associated with the production of English bone china.
