Do we have all of those patterns?
What about that front one? It does look familiar though.....

What beautiful photos you make, leish. Yes, I mean MAKE, not take.

May I ask how long you have been collecting these?

Why, thank you! My extremely "helpful" four year old was my assistant and she was so careful, truly! It was hard getting them all relatively straight as she was going along fixing them up after I did them.  Very Happy 

I've been collecting Crown Lynn for about two years, after I inherited four trios from my mums cousin when she passed away, and they had belonged to her mother. They consisted of the pink tulips and the pink blossom saucers and sides. I live in Christchurch, so I started after the major quakes. It was all on from then on! We love checking out op shops and garage sales, and as we are a one income family with two young kiddies I can only purchase pieces if they are a real bargain. I've had some very good luck with finding some of the more unusual colours without spending up large. Love swapping with other collectors too.

We use CL as our every day dinnerware too, mainly Apollo and duck egg vitrified stuff as it can handle the dishwasher (essential with kids!)
I have plenty more to send photos of but should really learn how to post them myself first, so thank you very much to Ev for doing it for me.

Oh, and the lilac floral duo is called Rapsody (yes, that is the correct spelling) Pat. No. D 774. Let me know if you need a photo of the stamp for the gallery. :)I don't have a lilac colour glaze one to compare it to but I have been told by a fellow collector who does that they are a perfect match.

Ooooo we don't have Rapsody! Yes please to the back stamp and I should be able to use your pic for the gallery. Rose Red we have, what about the other two?

The other two are Kelston Ceramics and Kelston Potteries. The blossom one is on a light oatmeal background and goes with the pink tulip, but I have seen it on Trade Me on a white background with matching patterned cup.

I'll sort out some closer photos of those and Rapsody.   Wink
