Carlton Ware introduced the embossed Crocus range in the late 1930's. This was another addition to a long sequence of flower and fruit designs that are very popular with Carlton Ware collectors.
This design was produced in two colourways of light green and pale yellow. The design of pretty spring flowers is very fetching and pleasing to the eye in these subtle colourways. As usual the Carlton Ware paintresses paid a lot of attention to all the finer details. It is finished with a nice glossy glaze.
This design is a realistic representation of spring flowers sprouting through the grass. The combination of mauve and red crocus flowers and yellow and pink primula flowers shown in full bloom is very pretty. The accompanying crocus leaves are very realistic and what you would expect to see in the wild. The primula leaves are tinged with yellow to authenticate the look. To complete the picture the flowers and leaves appear to be sprouting from soil at the base of the design. The jugs in this design have a crocus flower embossed into the shape of the handle, which adds another dimension to the design.
