Are these 2 teapots Crown Lynn? No they are English.

Post  mumof1 on Wed 3 Apr - 16:29


I am still a little confused as to whether there is a connection between these two and Crown Lynn? This one has 2 red lines like some of the super vitrified

and has this stamp

This one has 2 black lines

and has this stamp

and the two together. Different shapes and sizes, but only the body looks similar to Crown Lynn. The spouts and handles don't.  sunny

No sorry I dont think so , they are as marked by Grindley of Staffordshire England

Go to <http://www.thepotteries.org/mark/g/grindley.htm> to see some more info.

The 3 39 and 10 46 could indicate that they were made in March 1939. and October 1946 and imported by GibPat for the New Zealand catering trade market.

Saw quite a stack of plates with the same backstamp last year in a 2nd hand shop.

Hope this helps.

I picked up and looked at a bowl that I found at the op shop, thinking, CL double red line, turned it over and yep, had the same english mark as above. So it seems that there is a british counterpart. Nothing is original it seems! Rolling Eyes
Would love to find a teapot with the red lines. I have quite a wee stash of that pattern now, cups bowls and plates. My daughter-in-law says that the bowls are just the right size for her new dishwasher, the manufacturers of which seems to have ignored the fact that modern dinner set pieces are quite large! confused

If you check out these topics you will find that all of them have the words Crown Lynn on them somewhere along with Gibpat or other versions of Gibson & Paterson ...
