This elegant 1920s pattern shows a stork flying near a shiny golden disc representing the moon. The design features a gold transfer on a deep blue shiny ground.
Golden Moon bears all the hallmarks of Frederick Rhead’s work, and can be attributed to him.
The birds are decorated with hand painted enamels in pale blue, orange and white.
Golden Moon items were marketed by the London china retailers Hales Hancock and Godwin Ltd, c. 1922-27 or later. Rather than a Woods mark, items always bear the ‘H.H. & G. Ltd’ backstamp together with their ‘Toby Jug’ logo.
