Between about 1962 and 1973 the pattern was produced in a Light Blue but was not particularly, successful.
Sometimes the Tower border was used with other centres including nursery rhyme designs: for example pattern number 2/4797 of c1900 which is described as 'Tower border with Nursery Rhyme Centre'. Game and fish centres were produced with Tower border too.
