Hi again, David. I haven't been able to locate an example of this border but the central scene is shown in the TCC database in Butterfly Border #05 (ID# 7244). A couple of articles in the TCC bulletin you may find interesting: No. 2 from 2015, Pat Halfpenny's "Multi color printing on ceramics - it's earlier than you think" shows several examples of Enoch Wood's multi color transfers, including this scene on an Acanthus Scrolls Border plate. Margie Williams' "E. Wood & son's Interchanging Border Phenomenon" from the Spring 2008 issue looks at the Wood factory's practice of using the same central scene with several different borders. You have a fabulous website, David! I've so enjoyed looking at all you have to offer, and I'm not done yet. Thanks for sharing it with all of us.
