hon-john asked if this was a Crown Lynn backstamp and as I knew we had it in the Crown Lynn Backstamp Gallery I went to find it ..... and it has vanished!  
No topic about that backstamp anywhere either!  
So here is hon-john's photo of the Caribbean Ware backstamp.  
Val Monk says that this was used during the 1960's.  
I'm very certain that this was another Colour Glaze backstamp, along with Capri and South Pacific.  
Can somebody confirm this please?

There was a Woolworths advert in 1969 about Caribbean Dinnerware at the Museum.
Caribbean had 'tulip' cups and saucers and had the 3020 beaker coffee mugs as well and they cost 42 cents each !!
The contemporary colours available were, olive green, pink, teal and yellow and a 36 piece set cost $10.50 .......

My first stop in checking out saucers were the green tulip and saucer I picked up for a buck at Hikurangi and forgot about. Turns out it was a South Pacific cup (unmarked) sitting on a Caribbean saucer! That can't be right can it!!?!! See:
http://newzealandpottery.forumotion.net/t4551-south-pacific-cups-are-in-fatbums-are-out#16133
This is my first outing on saucers so it's all new.
Quick check against a Fleurette saucer tells me the Caribbean is both higher and wider, and has a heavier, yet smaller foot ring.

But disregard that as I have checked it against the remainder of my Fleurette saucers and find that near enough they are all the same diameter as the Caribbean, except one freak which is a clear 3mm wider, and 9 out of 15 have the same size of foot ring.

The only constant is that the Caribbean stands about 1.5mm higher than all the Fleurettes. Am I to understand that all these saucers are still 805s?

Is my Caribbean itself a freak?

Does Caribbean on the back stamp merely state the set to which it originally belonged and have no bearing on shape?

Can I put my fat bum, sorry South Pacific, cup on any 805 saucer I choose and damn the critics?
