No. 49 (November 1964)

This attractive design featuring wood pigeons is by Mr Colin Simon, of Wellington.

A winning entry in the recent design contest held by Crown Lynn Potteries Ltd in association with TEAL, the design is intended to be used on a plate (the matching cup and saucer, not shown here, carry a similar motif).

His design, an outstandingly successful modern interpretation of kowhaiwhai, won Mr Simon a return jet trip to the United States, together with £100 spending money.
