Carlton Ware Handcraft VICTORIAN LADY ~ 3451 (circa 1930)

"Pattern attributed to Violet Elmer"

 Carlton Ware Victorian Lady Pattern 3451

I was not sure whether this pattern should be included in the Handcraft or the Hand painted list as more examples exist without a Handcraft mark than with. After discussion with the panel I have decided to list it amongst the Handcraft patterns because in style it is Handcaft. It should be noted that nearly every example I have seen of this pattern is unique, no two appear to be the same. This in itself is a very Handcraft trait.

 There are two pattern number attributed to the Handcraft Clematis Pattern, 3525 and 3545, both of which are shown above. These are very similar, the ground is the same, the only difference I can detect is that flowers on 3545 (the vase above) are darker in colour than those on 3525 (revo bowl two above). I have handled at least 7 examples of from several collections and after discussion with the curators of these collections I feel confident that this is only variation.
