Spode's Convolvulus or Sunflower pattern is one of my favorite patterns.  It is perhaps the Holy Grail of floral patterns (at least to me).

It is a sheet or all-over pattern comprised of intertwining sunflowers and convolvulus (also known as bindweed or morning glories).  The color is a rich and varied cobalt. You can learn more about the pattern by visiting the Spode Exhibition Online, If you haven't visited this exhibition before, you are in for a rare treat.  It is truly a virtual Spode Museum.
