Woods Gallery 

This Japanese-influenced pattern has the Registration Number 662903, dating it to 1918+.

It features a selection of seated or standing Geisha girls in exotic costumes, with Bonsai trees in pots nearby. It is not known whether the pattern was the work of art director Frederick Rhead, or of another designer working at Woods at the time.

In a similar fashion to Frederick Rhead's famous Yuan pattern, the design varies according to the size of the item, making it a fascinating pattern to collect - note the range of different women and trees in the photos below...

In common with many other Woods patterns, there also exist hand-coloured versions, not only over the blue transfer but occasionally on a brown one, but these are hard to find.
