Close up of W&R Carlton Ware Mikado Bowl - pattern  

Over the last few days I have been looking at the various pattern numbers for the Mikado pattern. After the release of the Kosniowski’s latest tome “Carlton Ware, The Complete Guide”; I have decided to review my own work. Now in the “The Complete Guide” 36 numbers have been attributed to the Mikado pattern. Now after reviewing my own files I have come up with a list of 18 patterns; with another colour-way without a number.

 I have been informed by Harvey Pettit of “The Cochrane & Pettit Archive of Carlton Ware” that the first pattern 2355 and this dates the release of this pattern to 1919. To date I have never seen a clear pattern number which has a number earlier than this – there have been some, but none that are clear and concise.  

The numbers I have are as follows:-

2355 – Mother of pearl ground

2356 – Pale Blue lustre

 4373 - Vert Royale

 4433 - Rouge Royale

4434 – Mottled Navy lustre ground



These lists are just so complex – looking at photos and pattern lists and trying to work out which are the misread numbers and which are correct is enough to make one beg for a lobotomy. If you have example of Mikado where the numbers are clear and can be read without trying to work out if a 2 is a 8 or a 5 – please contact us and add your pearls of wisdom. Mistakes must be made and then corrected so a consensus can be reached which will give us the most accurate information – please contact if you can add to this discussion.

Hello there,

Just happened to be on your web page and noticed that you thought 25/12 might be the price.
There were 12 old pennies to the shilling, therefore, the price would be 26 shillings.
It might be 25/12 shillings.
Would that be expensive for 1963?
Or could it be the date, 25/12/1963?

Regards

Vaughan

You can email the images to me on nicholnack@optu snet.com.au . The code on the base in biro will be the purchase price when it was new. Twenty five shillings & twelve penceQuoting Steve Morrison:
I have a Rouge Royale Mikado pattern jar that I bought at auction recently. It is approximately 190mm high including the lid. Is this the 4433 pattern that you need? There is an impressed number on the base which looks like 125 4 but it is unclear. There is also the yellow sticker on the base with 25/12 and 1963 in biro. This is written over earlier letters or numbers so I think this may be someone's own catalogue number. Any information on this jar would be most welcome. I have some pictures if you need them but when I click on the attachment it asks for a URL which has stumped me.
Thanks,
Steve.
