Barbecue pattern is perhaps not what you might expect from its name. The design was produced on the unusual triangular shape called Tricorn which was introduced in 1957. The pattern comprised a series of four plates with comical pictures which were entitled 'No Comment'. Each of the 4 designs had its own pattern number indicating that these plates could be sold individually so they were not part of a tea set or dinner service, only plates were made.
Pattern number S3244 depicted a lamp post and dog's paw prints; S3251 depicted a cockerel bemused by a hen with ducklings; S3252 depicted a black cat being propelled to the moon by an old boot; S3253 depicted a steeplechase with a monkey as jockey on a kangaroo.

The backstamp included the word BARBECUE as if written on a fence. The pattern was not made for long, being discontinued in the early 1960s
