Parsley with Ivy Border

Alternate Names: Pattern 107


This pattern is exhibited here on a handled earthenware dessert dish. The background sheet pattern, known as Parsley, was printed in brown underglaze. The border and center medallion designs were printed in blue underglaze with ochre accents colored in. The center geometric design is added for interest and complements the colors used in the ivy vine with leaf border. This is pattern number 107 from the Spode B Pattern Book.  A somewhat similar pattern, named Honeysuckle and Parsley is also found in the exhibit.  In this example, the same Parsley sheet pattern also serves as a ground for the honeysuckle border and a floral center.
