Caliph

Although similar to Prunus, this is a more complex design with a network of veins and stems behind the flower heads.

It is one of a number of Frederick Rhead designs manufactured for WOOLWORTHS and bears their mark rather than the WOODS one. If only one could buy such items in today's store!

 

The items shown below were probably part of a dressing table set (see right).
