WOOD & SONS - Mayfair

This pattern with its distinctive pheasant was produced in several colourways, three of which are based on a blue transfer (see below).

The BROWN version shown right is the most commonly seen and is easily recognised by the distinctive brown edging on the 'piecrust' rim.

The old-fashioned, bulbous shapes of hollow ware items (such as the teapot and sugar bowl shown) hark back to the Victorian era.

 
The backstamp is the Woods Ware 'urn' mark, which was in use c. 1917-30, although the pattern itself dates from 1911 (according to one of the surviving Woods pattern books).
