2 Vintage Crown Lynn plates with fruit decoration and "Covent Garden British" backstamp c1960. 24 cm in diameter.

Both of these plates have been made of porcelain bases, and then covered in a transparent glaze. Two different fruit transfer prints have then been added to the centre of the plates. The first transfer print features Grapes, Plums, Cherries and Raspberries, while the second contains Strawberries, Peaches, Blackberries and Redcurrants. Finally, the outsides of the plates have been coated in thick gold decoration.

The first plate has a few light crazing marks on top and underneath. The second plate has crazing both on the top and underside. Otherwise in great vintage condition with no cracks or chips, no wear to the gilt detail on the rims. No wear at all to either of the bold fruit and wild berry bold transfer prints.

Crown Lynn was a pottery from New Zealand that operated between 1854 and 1989. The "Covent Garden British" backstamp was used in the late 1950's and early 1960's, when the factory was trying to pass off its products as British made.

These are fantastic plates, in excellent vintage condition, and would look great in a collection of vintage china, as well as in domestic use.
