Like 'Tomorrow's Classic' ('Decorative Arts 1850-1950', Cat. 436-440), 'Century' was designed in white, but with a range of different patterns to meet the demand for decorated tableware. The pattern on the dinner-plate was designed by Charles Seliger. See Eidelberg 1984, figs.71-4 for examples of the 'Century' range.
