OT: pottery/china - Iris Plates

Hello iris talk members, I am writing in response to an inquiry that I have
had from a fellow in England that is researching CT Maling & Sons
pottery/china with irises on it. In particular he is looking for info on
some iris plates that were perhaps made for an iris society or iris event
here in North America circa 1949 -1955 or 1958.

What is known:
These are a set of six pottery plates made by CT MALING & SONS in Newcastle
upon Tyne, England in circa 1958. Each plate is about 6 inches wide and has
an embossed iris in the center with the name beneath.

CT Maling made them sometime after the war possibly 1949 or 1955 or 58/59.
The plates are tea plate sized and have the same embossed iris head in the
center painted differently for each named iris variety. The six named
varieties are; GREAT LAKES, SOLID MAHOGANY, GOLDEN HIND, DON JUAN, CHERIE,
CITY OF LONDON.

Some questions:
Is there any special significance to the choice of iris varieties?

Were these plates made specially for a group such as Canadian Iris Society
(CIS) or American Iris Society (AIS)? for an iris convention? for an iris
society award?

Does anyone actually have any of these plates or knowledge of their
existence anywhere?

Any information would be most helpful. Please forward your replies to the
iris-talk list or myself. I will colllect the info and forward it on to the
interested party. Thanks!
