"The colours used by Rhodes for figures, flowers and landscapes on Wedgwood creamware are red, black, rosy purple, green and yellow, and occur not only on Wedgwood creamware but also on that of the Leeds Pottery. During the time that Rhodes was at Leeds the palette he then used was mostly confined to red and black though he sometimes introduced touches of green, rosy purple, yellow and other colours.
Among other enamelled designs found on Wedgwood's creamware we may first mention the very delightful and original banded and diapered patterns. These also are painted in red, black, rosy purple, green and yellow, and occur not only on Wedgwood creamware but also on that of the Leeds Pottery. On some pieces, this type of decoration is combined with flower painting in the style of Rhodes. It seems to be certain therefore that he was their author (plate 17B--see above)."
