Alfred Meakin, Marigold, Astoria shape
Dessert Bowl
1937 +
Replacements.com lists this pattern as Mea 389, I don't know if that is a Meakin # or one assigned by replacements.com
Poppies, wheat & I think the small blue & grey flowers are bachelor buttons
Does anyone know if Marigold is a series designation?

    Thanks Sean & brat for the love & the wonderful comments. The colours in these bowls - I was given two of them - are so vibrant I was drooling over them the minute that I first saw them!

    Thanks for the love & the comment Geno, it seems odd that a company that had hundreds of named designs would resort to a number for some items.

    Thanks Sis for the love & the kind words, Sherry did claim a couple of the pieces that I brought home, but these are mine!
    It's not often that you see heads of wheat on china.

    The gilding or sometimes silvering around the edges has all but disappeared but that is normal with so much use a lot of this makers ware had. What you have left is very beautiful, what a treasure !~

    Thanks for the comment & kind words Phil, I guess we'll all show a little wear at 75.
    These bowls belonged to my elderly neighbours mother.

    The flowers & wheat are a beautiful marriage on white.
    My Mom has a lot of Czech pottery with the same color/flower/wheat combination,.......but on black. Really lovely pieces that have been hanging on the walls at home since I was a child.

    Thanks for the love & sharing your story Budek, the wheat & flower combination seems prevalent in eastern European design.
