Rose of Jericho is born…
Rose of Jericho first traded from the Jericho Works at Deene near Corby, Northamptonshire, managed by Peter Hood who had originally trained under John Fowler. The Company manufactured a range of traditional limewash and distemper paints, slaked lime to produce lime putty and produced non-hydraulic mortars often employing the hot-mix method. This original incarnation was not commercially stable and was soon in financial difficulty.
