True Blue Magpie Plate


Two magpies nestled on a branch, illustrated in a deep blue oxide with the phrase 'Who'll ever doubt my hearts True Blue' around them.

Words taken from a Victorian transferware cup, and images inspired by Japanese woodblock prints. ‘True blue’ is a simplification of ‘Coventry blue’, a blue dye from the Middle Ages made in Coventry and known for it’s long lasting strength ‘As true as Coventry blue’
