50s roses

Johnson 'Sovereign Rose' plates, 1950sJohnson Sovereign ‘Rose’ pottery
made in Queensland, Australia 1957

This set comprises two plates- they are that rounded–square shape [‘squircle’] so beloved of the 50s.

I have waxed lyrical already about my love of 50s kitsch- but this set really has it all for me- botanical theme [tick] and stylised and over-coloured roses [tick.] The ‘Sovereign Rose’ dinner sets came in a deep crimson rose, and this lovely yellow rose design.

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 perhaps.

This set is in tip-top condition. For sale: $AUD50
