Because the pottery's records of patterns produced between 1890 and 1911 have not survived, early pattern names, if assigned, are lost to us, other than those that were named with a backstamp.

Patterns whose names are printed with the backstamp, as below, are listed on a separate page.

Some of the remaining patterns are named on this page.

A unique name for a pattern greatly assists pattern identification and so a Carlton Ware pattern
naming committee was formed in 1995 by members of CWCI, publishing its decisions in the club's
magazine The Carlton Times, which ran to 30 volumes (1993-2001) and The Carlton Comet,
Carlton Ware World's quarterly magazine, which ran to 12 issues, then being replaced by this website.

Many of the obvious names were already used. Naming patterns is much more difficult than it sounds,
which is probably why Carlton Ware did not name all of them!


Please note that each pattern had many variants.

Most Blushware patterns were decorated using various and diverse colour combinations,
sometimes making them look quite different, especially when they are printed in flow blue.
