Crown Lynn Tea set unmarked

Post  Tarvster on Fri 5 Apr - 22:21



Hi

Can anyone tell me what tea set this is from Crown Lynn please? It is unmarked but my Mum used to work there and said she won it at one of the companies picnics.

I also have another one of hers - do you know what this one is as well. I am selling these for her and also need an approx value if anyone can help too please.



Thank you
Karen

Great to see you have the photo posting under control,what gorgeous tea sets they are! I can't really help you with value, but I'm sure people will be along, if not tonight, then tomorrow, who can give you more of an idea.

I can tell you that the green striped tea set was produced between 1948 and 1955, when that particular backstamp was in use. The floral one looks to be of the same era, is the cup shape the same for all three sets? The floral and green stripe look to be the same shape, but I can't quite tell with the cream/gold set.

Well done Karen cheers
We don't have pattern names for any of those sets .... yet.
We do have the first set in another colour on the site -

I don't have any idea as to the value of them, but as they represent an early time frame in Crown Lynn's history, there should be some interest in them. I think they are just lovely!
Is that a teapot just showing to the right in the second photo?
I would love to see it properly if possible Karen.

Hi Kare, these are lovely. Can you pls tell me what your mother did at Crown Lynn, and if you don't mind sharing the info, when she was there? I wrote the Crown Lynn book and we are keen to interview more staff members through this coming year. Val Monk

These are all beautiful sets! :loveit: Wouldn't they be coffee sets though? The smaller cups look like demitasse size and coffee pots were taller than teapots. (I think)

I will catch up with Mum on Wednesday night and get more details for you. On another note my Uncle was the Manager at Crown Lynn for many years as well - Fred Hoffmann.

Cheers

Wow from me too! Fred was a bit of a ledgend and worked there for a long time, as I understand. I look forward to hearing from you after you've had a chat with your mum, thanks very much Karen. (No pressure of course, as to whether she wants to talk to me or not, it's entirely up to her.) Yours, ValM

As the base shapes are all the same, this confirms the sugar bowl as a 776 really, because the coffee pot is a 777, the jug is a 775.

This must also mean that the little teeny coffee cups [demitasse] are shape 773 and the saucers 774!!! It makes sense to me !!! I feel confident enough to put the 773 and 774 into the gallery, when I locate them!
