Throughout the ages cottage
garden herbs such as Thyme, Peppermint, Rosemary and Feverfew have been cultivated for
their culinary, cosmetic and medicinal properties.
Over the centuries many botanical works have been published. During the seventeenth
century specialist gardens were established at Universities across Europe for the
cultivation and study of herbs and their remedies.
Botanical drawings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries accurately recorded plant
specimens and their classifications, whilst published books such as Curtis's Botanical,
Maund's Botanical Garden and Flora Americae helped provide rich sources of material for
contemporary designers of porcelain decoration.
Taking its inspiration from this meticulous and colourful style of illustration
the Worcester Herbs design depicts attractive cottage garden herbs, each labeled in the
traditional way with both their Latin and common names.
