I saw something by them a few months ago but forgot to search.

I recall seeing something made by them listed recently too and I'm sure that it had something to do with royalty as well. That mug looks very much like the 3050 shape doesn't it?

I thought it was when I first saw it but comparing the photo to a 3050 I had on hand the Warwickshire appears to have a slightly longer handle.

And yeah, I think maybe the one I saw at Red Cross was Royalty too (or then again maybe I'm just dreaming).

This might go some way to casting a little light on the wee mystery of Warwickshire Quality Chinaware of Stratford NZ.

The porcelain is of A1 quality which I guess suggests it might not have been produced in a small ephemeral ceramics factory in provincial Taranaki.

I found these two coffee mugs and saucers. The mugs are marked Warwickshire but the saucers are marked AK Kaiser, West Germany. This indicates first that Warwickshire did the low-fired enamel transfer work on imported white porcelain and second, that they were in operation before German unification in 1989.

Another Warwickshire backstamp clearly stating the case that they decorate pottery (rather than actually making it). Seen at Andrew Whillans' place.

At last we have this 'Royal' mug on the site and how interesting it is as it was made by Crown Lynn with it's Made In New Zealand base marking and is the 3050 shape.  Warwickshire must have purchased plain white mugs and added the decals.

Earthenware (3050) or stoneware (3802)?

I ask because stoneware would be more in keeping with the other wares Warwickshire was using.

That 3802 remains elusive doesn't it ...... 
Maybe we will never know if this is or if it isn't Wink
Perhaps one could tell if it was compared to the earthenware 3050.
I know the House of Reps stoneware crockery that I collect feels very different compared to the usual earthenware.

I picked up a piece of Warwickshire Pottery today celebrating the marriage of Charles and Diana dated 1981 and it is a very white porcelain type clay.  No idea where it was sourced from though.

The Ferret has some info on this pottery through a friend.
The owner was Verne Dick, living in Stratford.
He started his business in the early 1970's until around 1990.
About 15years
Ferret forgot to add the photo, but no doubt he will before too long Wink

That Kaiser West Germany stamp was used from 1970.

They made porcelain aka fine bone china.
