Today I discovered some Crown Lynn pieces I didn't even know I had :
I inherited this seahorse wall pocket from my Mum.
I'm not sure which of my grandmothers she inherited it from - probably Dad's mother Ella.
I found these little Golden Bouquet dessert bowls in a Milton op shop for $2 each.
I'm guessing they are from the 1950s, and I adore them.
A quintessentially 1970s side plate from the Hospice Shop.
Yellow roses on a Kelston Potteries trio, $6.
A green Ascot plate, "inspired" by Carlton Ware.
Found in my cupboard, op-shopped long ago.
A cute 1970s Ovenproof Cookware casserole, $5 from a Gore op shop.
If you're going to collect Crown Lynn, it pays to swot up on all the different back stamps.
They must have used hundreds.
Today, being Saturday, I had good intentions to save my money for a trip I'm taking to Hamilton. However I failed miserably at that, and bought a painting from my friend Mike, and this amazing book:
With bold needle and thread : adventures in vintage needlecraft, by Rosemary McLeod.
Luckily I only spent $8 in the Hospice shop.
