Foxglove and Wisteria are a splendid pair of designs in vibrant colours that are keenly sought after by collectors. One gets the feeling that these patterns and the snow glaze were made for each other and perhaps this is not just a reflection of today's taste but that of 1937 as well.
There are many references to these patterns, (they always seem to be treated together), in the trade journals mostly relating to their display at the British Industries Fair of that year.
Virtually all examples seen have the period 2 backstamp style, apart from the oft repeated exception of the occasional charger with a younger backstamp style. The distribution of names of who tube-lined Foxglove, (and this applies to the Wisteria pattern also), is very clear cut. Only the experienced members of the team did the work, Elsie, Rose, Hannah, Dora and Fanny.
