The design elements for Golden Leaves were not new ones for Charlotte as they are clearly a development of her Elesmere/Wenlock/Breedon tableware print design together with a border similar to that used for Byzantine, (2681). We are fortunate that research by Gerrard Shaw is able to confirm the history and design attribution of these tableware patterns which is well presented in his thesis and book. The tableware patterns were very popular and were produced in several colourways. The three original versions were released in early 1935, Elesmere, (4009), in blue/yellow/green, Wenlock, (4010), in pink/yellow/green and Breedon, (4011), in orange/yellow/brown. Another couple of variations, in almost Golden Leaves colours of scarlet and grey, (4230 & 4299), were released in the spring of that year. Then in the summer of 1936 pattern 4820 appears with the leaves in green and flowers in orange, yellow, brown and red.
