WH Grindley Quiet Day dessert set

This auction is for a dessert set manufactured in England circa 1950s

The manufacturer is W.H. Grindley and the pattern is 'Quiet Day'. The creamy white china is decorated with an all-over transfer in brown, depicting an English rural scene with a thatched cottage and a village in the distance. It is hand coloured with red, yellow, blue and green.

The set consists of a large scalloped edged serving bowl and five small dessert dishes. The serving bowl is a good size at approx 7 cm tall x 23 cm from handle to handle. It has some crazing indicative of age. It is in great vintage condition with no chips or cracks.

The scalloped edged dessert bowls are 3.5cm tall x 13cm across. Made in a time when the fashion was for small dessert bowls. The bowls are also in great vintage condition with some crazing also. No chips. One bowl has what looks like a firing crack on its back. I can't see a corresponding crack on the surface of the bowl and I have had someone else check as well.

The transfer pattern in all pieces is in excellent vintage condition with very minor wear marks.

Lovely vintage 'Quiet Day' Grindley dessert set.
