Alpine Pink, a coloured bone china body, decorated with sepia transfer print of flowers and picked out in gold. This solid coloured body was introduced by Norman Wilson in 1936. Unsuccessful trials for a stained bone china body had been made in 1878, and subsequently between 1882 and 1886 when green, yellow, pink and lilac bodies were produced in very small quantities. Alpine Pink was the first true commercial production of a stained bone china body.
