Woods Yo-Sa

Along with its sister pattern Yo-San, this is one of Woods' most attractive and colourful Chinese-inspired patterns. Although both patterns have a Frederick Rhead feel to them, they were probably designed by his associate Jack Butler, who succeeded him as art director of the firm in 1929.

The Reg No 747931 dates MANCHU to 1929+. Woods' publicity in this year claimed that it was based on the design of an unknown artist of the K'ang Hsi period (1662-1722), the golden age of Chinese porcelain. The design features a stork or crane in a Chinese landscape.

In common with most Woods patterns of this period, MANCHU was also produced in a plain BLUE & WHITE version.
