Some more of my Diana collection. The Flannel Flower is the floral emblem of NSW [and has been associated with this State since Federation in 1901.] Diana pottery in the 60s produced a number of Sydney-specific floral emblems on vases and pots – some were hand painted [and quite garish in my opinion.] I like the more subtle relief work depicting the Flannel Flower on this jug.
These jugs- and matching vases [see previous post]- were made in baby blue, pastel green, powder pink and this white – colours perhaps more in keeping with the 50s; perhaps the colours were so popular they were carried over into the 60s.
My Diana collection finishes with these pieces from the 60s…I really can’t bring myself to embrace the pieces that were made in the 70s. I’ve styled the jug as an impromptu vase – with a cat figurine for company.
The Flannel Flower jug is for sale: $AUD45
