Mikado is the first of Carlton Ware “Super Patterns”, designed by Horace Wain, it was in production from 1919 right up until the early 1960’s. The Mikado is of a fanciful Chinese Garden set on islands in a lake with Pagodas, Temples, Bridges and Barges. There are nearly always a pair kissing Storks in flight above the scene.
