Pomona was launched in 1982, with pictures from the English Pomological Magazine from the early 1800s.
They are hand-coloured engravings with very vivid colours.
The motifs on these six 7 inch plates are: Grimwoods Ruyal George, the Ingestrie Pippin, the Hazel Nut, Wilmots Early Red, L’Imperatrice Plum and the White Dutch Currant.
The White Dutch Currant was later replaced by the Red Currant, the image looks mirrored, the currants are now red:
The blue L Imperatrice Plum was replaced by the Reine Claude Plum:
The Biggeraux Cherry looked unripe and was therefore replaced by the Late Duke Cherry.
The plates here have differently sized motifs:
The Hazel Nut is an all time favourite:
The Ingestrie Pippin
The Hoary Morning Apple
The Teinton Squash Pear
The Princess of Orange Pear
The Wild Blackberry
Later motifs on plates with a leaf border are: the Lane’s Prince Albert Apple, the Roman Apricot, the Kiwi, the Shropshire Damson and the Elsanta Strawberry.
Some of these can also be found on no border plates:
