"Kelston Philippines" backstamp "Springflower"

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Tue 27 Oct - 12:53

Karen at Deco 2 Retro showed me this curious piece that she picked up in Fresno California. The pattern named "Springflower" is not Springflower d825 but a brown version of Springtime d633, Springwood Gold d115, or Springwood Green d116.

I don't think we've seen the Kelston Philippines backstamp before either. A strange combination.

The plate is a standard coupe dinner plate but both Karen and I think it is heavier than a typical CL plate.

Rather novel isn't it, as it looks so familiar, yet it is from the exotic Philippines.
I have been adding the Philippine patterns to the Crown Lynn Patterns Gallery, so I think we should continue to do this. I found a whole lot of Patterns designs for the Philippines, but along the lines of Ligaya and co at the Crown Lynn Museum on my last visit.
