Artist's Description

A spring day, cherry blossoms, hand embroidered pink roses on linen cloth.
a perfectly beautiful antique Sutherland china coffee set
setting is my garden.

The coffee set I brought in a second hand a second hand shop in the 70s.
I have never really been able to date properly but would appear to date back to 1910 perhaps and the Art Nouveau period with the stylish motif.
I feel in love it purely as it remind me of some of my grandmothers embroideries and china. In all the time I have had it, have never seen the pattern anywhere else,
Rather than the Rampant lion trademark mine has the crown.
The table cloth I worked myself back in the 70’s also, Semco design on linen

c. 1889–1941
Manufacturer of bone china at the Alma Works and, from c.1892, the Sutherland Works, Longton. Formerly a partnership between Joseph H. Middleton and William Hudson (1870–1889) at the Alma Works, the partners separated and William Hudson continued on his own account moving to the Sutherland Works in c.1892. At some point, control of the Hudson business passed to his son-in-law George Edwin Barlow and (his brother?) Thomas George Barlow. In 1941 the business of J. H. Middleton & Co. (owned by the Barlow and Chapman families) was moved to the Sutherland Works of William Hudson under the wartime Concentration Scheme, and the principals combined the two businesses as Hudson & Middleton Ltd.
William Hudson & Co. manufactured good quality tea and tableware using the ‘Sutherland China’ trade name. The mark (from c.1936) was a lion rampant below the well known trade name ‘Sutherland China’
