Pattern 6198 Basket
A simple design using a flower basket motif that was widely used for ceramic design in the first half of the 20th century. No examples have been seen that would indicate production continued after Charlotte had left the company or after the wartime restrictions on decorated pottery were introduced.

In fact Charlotte is recycling her own design here, pattern 268 from when she worked for Wood & Sons Bursley Ltd which incorporates a similar tube-lined basket and is illustrated in Collecting Rhead Pottery by Bernard Bumpus.
