With Fruit Border Charlotte returns to the popular earth coloured lustres that were so successful for her with Tudor Rose, 4491 and Falling Leaves, 4921.
There is a more colourful variation of Fruit Border in green, red, yellow and orange enamels. These make up just 3% of the observed examples and so are quite rare.
The pattern was popular but it seems likey that between 45% and 50% of the production could have been made after Charlotte had left Richardsons. All of these younger items have the AGR5 type 481 backstamp and none have the AGR3 style. Therefore it is probably safe to assume that production did cease by the early 1950s and did not continue through the mid 1950s like patterns 4040, 4298, 4921, 5983 and the post war pink and grey designs.
