My idea with the 50s Rose collection is this: collect in a theme [roses] and a date [1950s] – then mass together on a wall.
These ten plates are by Myott, England; Swinnertons, England, Wood & Sons, England and Sovereign pottery, Australia. I collected them all individually, then once a certain mass has been obtained- display them altogether. Some of the plates are paired, and there are four of the ‘squircle’ Sovereign Pottery plates: arrange them randomly or in groups to fit the space available.

Johnson 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
