I love all things designed by Vera.  These plates make a statement!!  They are the Sunflower pattern designed by Vera Neumann for Island Worcester.  All handpainted under the glaze, in Jamaica ca. 1960’s.

Priced at $10 each dinner plate and $ 6 each side plate.

Please note all these dishes are now SOLD!!

    Hello, I’ve been searching all over for these plates. My Grandmother had a collection of them, however they were accidentally given away after she passed, and all that remains are the serveware and tea / coffee set. If you do come across these again, I would really appreciate being contacted.

    Do you purchase items from the States? I have many pieces of the sunflower pattern. I am interested in selling them as I have had them packed up for the last 25 years. They were given to me as wedding gifts as my husband’s family bought them in Amhestburg area.

    I was wondering if maybe you can help me… I found a cup/saucer in this print by Island Worcester but they do not have the name Vera on either piece. I have been unsuccessful in finding any information on my set and was wondering if you could direct me. Thank you!

      The Sunflower pattern is definitely a design by Vera Neumann for Island Worcester dated in the 1960’s. It is possible some pieces did not have her signature on it but I believe most had the famous Vera signature and trademark ladybug logo on them. Some smaller pieces may not have had enough room on the underside for the complete information. Island Worcester was a subsidiary of English Royal Worcester that was located in Jamaica. All dishes were hand painted underglaze and they were painted by women employed in the factory. Vera Neumann was a famous designer of mid century dishes, linens and scarves and her designs are still very collectible. She passed away in the mid 1990’s and was actively painting right up to the year of her death. You can find out more information on Vera Neumann’s career online. Some information is available on Wikipedia and also under Vera Neumann history. Check out sites on Royal Worcester or Island Worcester Pottery for further research.
