Charlotte Rhead tube-lined fancies for Crown Ducal

This gallery of images shows the most easily found Charlotte Rhead tube-lined designs for fancies, (chargers, jugs, vases and bowls). Clicking on an image will take you to a page with further infomation on that design Including details of the colour of slip, enamels, lustres and glaze name where these are known. There will be an estimate of the design date and for how long the pattern was in production. A statement on the origin of pattern names will try to inform on whether it is of the period, named by Bernard Bumpus or some other source.


The frequency ranking is a rough measure of pattern popularity as quantified by what has been recorded for sale over the past 20 years. The distibution is exponentional as one would imagine. Golden Leaves represents more than 10% of the sample, (the sample contains the 50 or so most commonly found patterns). Common patterns drop quickly to 3.5% for Manchu, 2% for Hydrangea, then there is a long steady tail to the graph where the least common, the rare Arabian Scroll colourways are represented by only 0.13 % of the sample. The frequency ranking is only a guide, it is not rigourous statistics. I include examples of patterns made after Charlotte left Richardsons if the design stayed basically the same, but I exclude modern versions where the colours changed drastically, like 5803.
