Footnotes

  • In 1923, Daisy Makeig-Jones introduced the 'Imps on a Bridge and Tree House' design to the Fairyland range that would become the most highly produced of all the series. To supplement this design, she designed a variation, as she often did, so that it could become incorporated on a number of different shapes. The variation here is known as 'Roc Centre'. This roundel design was used on Lincoln plates with a combination of borders and although Una des Fontaines lists seven variations in her reference work, this current lot provides an eighth.

    There are two main differences from those previously recorded. Firstly the colourway to the centre design is different from any other listed. Secondly, this centre design is not listed as having been produced in combination with this border.
