Featured Range - APPLE BLOSSOM - page 1 of 2

APPLE BLOSSOM, part of Carlton Ware's extensive SALAD WARE range, was introduded in 1938. It was mainly available in two colours, yellow and green. During World War Two and up until 1952, because of government restrictions, it was only available undecorated apart from a plain coloured ground. It was the most popular of all Carlton Ware's ranges and hence largest and continued to be made into the 1960s.

As always, each item is beautifully modelled and decorated doing justice to its fine body. All this usually put copyists and competitors to shame.
