Jackstraw Linoleum

Allan Collier Collection

I mentioned previously that the Jack Straw motif on Hycroft china was inspired by a lino sample – this pattern likely inspired the name. According to Malcolm MacArthur who managed Medicine Hat Pottery, the precursor to Hycroft, the designers “often sought ideas from floor covering catalogues”.
