Hi,

I didn't see this band in the glossary - it is repeated three times on a Curry & Preston creamer I own for the moment. It appears to be a repeating bell-flower theme to me, but I am not sure.

Thanks for starting this glossary!

I don't recognize the figures in this pattern, although I feel I should - do they represent Bellflowers? Tulips? Something else? We need that for a name. Anybody have a suggestion?

This design does look a lot like a bellflower, but it makes me think more of a husk design.

I would describe it as bellflower-I think we are just used to seeing that pattern in a vertical line rather than horizontal.
