Description

Johnson Brothers' elaborate Acanthus features embossed elongated leaves.  Even flatware pieces such as ordinary plates and bowls are decorated with triangular shaped leaves on the rim border.  Holloware pieces such as the ewer and the sugar bowl have deeply ruffled melon ribs.  This body style is sometimes confused with Chelsea.
