The story behind the name "anemone" is of life and death. The word comes from the Greek language and means "windflower". According to Greek Mythology the anemone flower sprang up from the blood of Aphrodite's slain lover, Adonis. The word "windflower" signifies that the wind that blows the petal open will also blow the dead petals away.
Carlton Ware introduced the Anemone range in 1934. It was one of the first of the "floral embossed" range made by Carlton Ware. It is very collectable.
The pattern was produced in three colours: yellow, green and pink; all with many different coloured flower heads.
