The Director of The Johnston Collection Museum of Fine and Decorative Arts, Nina Stanton, commissioned this series of beautiful floral designs for museum patrons to purchase as a memento of their visit.

I used the hand painted imagery on the dessert plates from a service produced by Sir James Duke and Nephew, Staffordshire, United Kingdom 1860 - 1864 as the source of inspiration for these designs. (Click on the photo bottom right to see an enlargement of one of these beautiful plates.)

The Duke and Nephew dinner service is only one of the many exquisite exhibits to be seen at this unique museum.

These are the first four of a collection that I hope will grow to include all the dessert plate imagery in this glorious service.

These kits are available in Australia exclusively from the Museum of Fine Decorative Arts, East Melbourne, or from this site.

The finished stitched size of these designs is approximately 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) square. All kits contain an instruction sheet, chart, 18 count ecru Aida cloth, needle, DMC stranded cottons and a coloured photograph of the completed design.
