WOOD & SONS - Kenya

This pattern from the 1920s has all the hallmarks of a FREDERICK RHEAD pattern - stylised flowers and fruit motifs alongside a spiral-based border design

It was retailed by the firm of LAWLEYS in London's Regent Street, whose mark appears on many items.

 

Items were most commonly produced in a plain BLUE & WHITE transfer (with brown trim on the rims).

Hand-coloured items were also produced on blue, red or brown transfers. These are harder to find.

Plates and cups are circular, but jugs, teapots, and gravy boats have the same HEXAGONAL shape as Woods' famous YUAN pattern.

Tureens and vegetable dishes have the typical square 'Yuan' shape.
