Diana ‘Flannel Flower’ pottery

Diana Flannel Flower jugs and vaseDiana Flannel Flower jugs & vase
made in Sydney, Australia c.1960s

Some more of my Diana collection. 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 these jugs and vase.

The colours of the jugs and the vase seem more in keeping with the 50s; perhaps the baby blues, greens and pinks [examples of which have appeared in previous posts….] 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.

[Since this image was taken, I have added another, larger white Flannel Flower jug to the collection. I KNOW I’m supposed to be downsizing, but I can’t resist the Flannel Flower pieces!]

This set of three pieces is for sale: $AUD145

Diana Flannel Flower pottery

Diana Flannel Flower potteryDiana Flannel flower pottery
made in Marrickville, Sydney c.1954

Some more of my Diana collection. I have mentioned before that the Flannel Flower is the floral emblem of NSW [and has been associated with this State since Federation in 1901.]  Diana pottery in the 50s produced a number of Sydney specific floral emblems on vases, pots and kitchen cookware– and some – like these Flannel flowers- were all hand painted.

This set comprises: a lidded casserole dish [hand painted with ‘28’ on the base] a stovetop pan [‘9’ on base] and a large baking dish [‘6’ on base] –these all have the ‘scroll handle’ that Diana used on many of its kitchenware. These pieces are all ovenproof, although I don’t think any of these has seen the inside of an oven. The pie dish [has ‘1’ on base] and the large serving platter [“4”] found out the set.

All pieces are in perfect condition with the exception of the large platter which has a small nick in its rim. For Diana collectors, or Flannel flower devotees, this set is for sale: $AUD250
