Patricia Rose

Patricia, as it was originally know, was first introduced in 1938 and shows a delicate pink rose surrounded by flowing leaves and buds. The pattern has become a great favourite with Japanese collectors. The rose itself is applied by transfer while the borders colours are normally wash banded. The pink wash border finish is possibly the most frequently seen version, with the green wash border variations a close second. The scallop border finish is also applied by transfer print. The pattern appears on most shapes produced by Susie including Kestrel dinner, tea, coffee ware and associated items, Rex shape tea and coffee ware, Doric coffee cups, lamp bases and chargers.
