While the Haworth pattern design was modern, the Haworth mold shapes were more retrospective. Haworth was made in full dinner and tea ware ranges in a very detailed and styalised mold design with the flat ware based on the earlier Sheraton (Louis XIV Shape) plate shape design. Haworth China Teapots, milk jugs and sugar bowls are oblong and footed, harking back to 18th and 19th Century English shapes of Spode and Derby.
Royal Albert Haworth is increasingly popular amongst Royal Albert enthusiasts and collectors. Haworth is harder to find than Royal Ablert Old Country Roses, Royal Albert Lavender Rose or Royal Albert Moss Rose, but it is still possible to put workable collections together. The hardest pieces to find are the large Teapots, few of which have survived.
