What Crown Lynn Tableware Patterns do you think are the most popular?

Post  Ev on Thu 27 Oct - 15:44

Just about every pattern that Crown Lynn made has it's followers.
But what do you think should be in the Top 10 favourites?

I've started a Poll for this with a multiple choice function - please vote,
but if you think that there should be other patterns on there, please let us know Smile
We should be able to work this out together .....

Yes, Downtown is fought over on Trademe ... Cool

Ah, Echo and Egmont are quite popular but they aren't as rare as other patterns. Love the Vintage and Autumn Splendour (I like to think of them as my Summer and Winter sets). And quite surprised how much my mother loves collecting Heritage, Homestyle and Blue Willow.

re top 40 patterns

Post  Jonno on Thu 23 Feb - 16:48

Whilst it may not be considered a pattern it was the range that started me on this hobby and I see that on page 120 of Monk it was rated as the best ever selling line for CL in Australia and was 'snapped up' by NZ buyers in 1976 when it was first released.
Can we have Pioneer in the top 40 please?
Curiously it is not indexed in Monk

Post  Thelma on Fri 24 Feb - 10:50

Gee it is really difficult to choose a favourite. I am of course biased because I have used homestyle as my main set since 1988! I just get a few more pieces whenever i see them in shops. I also have bits of Landscape, colourglaze, apollo, to name a few. Colourglaze is the one I nominated because they brought out some really nice colours and it is almost impossible to find anywhere now. I have some small cups and saucers with IGA on them plus a few other bits. Snaffled a pale green plate from daughters place last week.

I've added Homestyle Thelma .... it goes on the list if it is your favourite Smile
I haven't added my personal favourite Herald from 1982 yet, because if I had to choose all over again, I wouldn't be able to, as there are too many gorgeous choices!

Post  Maryr on Sat 15 Dec - 15:55

I am SO interested in this poll, do keep it going as long as you can Ev.
But the tricky variable is supply and demand - the rare patterns eg Bora Bora get snapped up because besides being really cool they hardly ever turn up for sale.. but does that Bora Bora more popular than (eg) Echo which is very common. You won't get a bidding war over Echo but it is remembered with affection by so many of us.

Certainly Maryr ...

This is the pattern, and my dinner set is made up of the two versions

which are exactly the same, only the background shading is slightly darker on the D553 than the d426 - no idea why one D is a capital and the other isn't

this set just gives me that homey warm feeling sunny
