Crossfords dinnerware.

Post  Ev on Thu 23 Oct - 18:31

We have a Crossfords Kiwi Family New Zealand pattern in the Crown Lynn Gallery, which came from Manos.



Today I found a Crossfords Koru Design New Zealand side plate the same as this auction ..

I just need confirmation that it was made by Crown Lynn please, as the plate shape didn't feel familiar.  I know the story about the Kiwi Family design as I follow the Viking on Facebook and he said that Bettina his lovely wife did the artwork for Crossfords.

I won't get to put up a photo until Sunday.

When we went to the Vikings shop in Woodville at the beginning of the year he told me all about his wife doing the artwork for the Crossfords too. It was very interesting.

There were four of these Crossfords Koru Design New Zealand side plates and three were terribly crazed.  This one however is perfect and 'feels' like Crown Lynn.  It is 177mm across and has a deeper shape that any other Crown Lynn side plate that I can find.  The backstamp has a Crown Lynn look about it too.  Darn I wish I had kept a copy of that auction above to compare the cup shape, but now it's gone, though hopefully it will come back.

I am confident that the Crossfords kiwi dessert plate is CL. I did a bog post on this after talking to Bettina about her role. We can ask her about the koru ware. When i get home from weekend away.

Thanks as now I can see that it's a shape 3061 first made in 1982.

Crossfords on a 1397

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Fri 7 Apr - 13:02

This 1397 stein was made for Crossfords.

It is the same shape as the limited edition Tom Clark one.

The only marks on the bases of both are the transfers.


I have posted this Crossfords mark in the backstamps gallery, and as the other shapes have been confirmed as CL I have also posted the Crossfords Kiwi Family New Zealand and Crossfords Koru Design New Zealand.


these are the correctly formatted gallery images
