Booths – Coloured Willow

The variants below are very hard to find. The Harley Jones version has the pattern name Ye Old Chinese Willow.

The Booths plate is unusual in that scenes from the willow landscape appear on the border of the plate, the central portion being simplified. There is gold edging, but no hatched border or inner band.
