Hartung Book Two: Hearts and Flowers

Characterized by the circular band of heart shapes, Hearts and Flowers is an extraordinarily popular pattern, available in a great variety of colors--though only three shapes. If you like the idea of collecting colors within a pattern, there are few better places to start. The pattern accounts for 1.4 percent of all classic carnival items sold at auction. Compotes, by the way, are more common than bowls.

The plate at the upper left is pastel marigold, the pie crust edged bowl above is electric blue, and the compotes are electric blue, marigold, and green.

Note that Fenton has a similar contemporary pattern, but such pieces should be marked.
