- Pattern Description
Evesham Gold, named after the local fruit growing region near Worcester, was developed by Royal Worcester in 1961 amid a new trend for informal dining that was to bring the humble casserole dish from the kitchen to the dining table!
The design was in the tradition of still life fruit compositions which had be used for centuries to test a painters skill. Therefore, it was a natural progression that Royal Worcester artists should develop the same skills. Within the Evesham Gold design apples, pears, cherries, damsons and blackberries are just a few of the colourful fruit sprays.
Once the original designs were complete they were faithfully reproduced using an eighteenth century technique incorporating lithographic stones which were painstakingly registered by hand in a stippled dot engraving method to reveal an impression of the original artwork for transfer to the ceramic ware.
