Eric Knowles Comments : This range of designs had fewer 'required elements' than the reproductions of oriental scenes, which stuck more rigidly to type; there are - therefore - a number of variations on the general theme, but they are all generally recognisable enough to have been given a collective name; our pair is a marriage of two non-matching versions
