From the Clark Family Collection in the Crown Lynn: Pottery for the People Exhibition at the Gus Fisher Gallery Auckland.

Tom Clark had a specially designed dinnerset made to present to Queen Elizabeth when she toured Crown Lynn in 1963. He also had one made for his mother and this is what was on display at the Exhibition.

Ah yes, it is very striking! The same as the one I sent in that my Mother had, but hers is the pale green/teal colour marked on the back with the Ascot mark.

The Royal entourage arrives outside Crown Lynn's main entrance.
The General Manager, Mr T. E. Clark junior, is introduced by the deputy Prime Minister, Mr Marshall.
Mr Clark escorts the Queen to the entrance of the Clay and Slip
Preparation Department, where all raw materials are mixed, milled,
extruded and tested.
Mr Clark points out the tube mills, magnets, Screens
and presses used to blend the raw materials.
The mills 'used here, originally ore-crushers in the old gold mines at Waihi; were adapted by
Crown Lynn engineer's to enable them to grind the raw materials for
pottery making.
