Today we have a pop quiz. What do these five patterns have in common?
This is a detail from the back of a Blue Willow pattern teacup, this one from Churchill. I once read that the three little guys on the bridge are humorously called "the communists" because they're always leaning left, and whether that label is true or not, they are indeed always leaning in that direction!
This teacup is in Royal Albert's Old Country Roses pattern.
This is one of my "everyday" dishes, Johnson Brothers Rose Chintz.
This is a dessert plate from Spode's Christmas Tree pattern.
And this is a Johnson Brothers His Majesty pattern dinner plate. I just finished reading a book which informed me these five patterns are all on a list together. A list of what? Any guesses? Tomorrow I'll tell!
