Although this set was produced in the 1930’s, the backstamp gives a nod to ancestors of the Wood family of potters, Enoch who was born in 1784 and Ralph born 1750.

The flowers featured are Marguerites and Roses,  as well as an adorable pair of  budgerigars that embody  the “Two for Joy” theme.  The budgerigar is also known as a parakeet  and  nicknamed the budgie.  “Two for joy” was the inscription on Princess  Elizabeth’s commemorative 1926 china pattern which featured a pair of magpies. Two magpies were observed at the church during the baptism of Elizabeth thus inspiring the quote.
