We used to take Crown Lynn china for granted. Growing up in the 1950s and 60s, it was everyone's everyday china onto which the meat and three veg was piled, day after day.
Living rooms gave pride of place to a Crown Lynn swan, often sitting on a dainty ecru lace doily.
NZ History Online's presentation of some of Crown Lynn's finest pieces puts it in a different perspective. NZ Pottery and Collectables Forum are aiming to collect photos of every Crown Lynn shape. I was amazed by the diversity.
