Sovereign ‘Rose’ pottery

Sovereign potteryJohnson Sovereign ‘Rose’ pottery
made in Queensland, Australia 1957

This set comprises two plates- they are that rounded–square shape so beloved of the 50s, and a jug. The jug is inscribed with 1 ½ pt to its base- an indication of its holding capacity.

I have waxed lyrical already about my love of 50s kitsch- but this set really has it all for me- botanical theme [tick] stylized and over-coloured roses [tick] thin gilt line to the jug handle and rim to suggest glamour [tick.]

A whole dinner set of this stuff could be somewhat overpowering- I think it would be nice to mix these plates with plain 50s coloured plates – picking up the rosey colours and the square-roundy shape perhaps.

This set is in tip-top condition. For sale: $AUD65
