Crown Lynn: A New Zealand Icon - Valerie Ringer Monk
Crown Lynn china now has iconic status. From its early days of churning out railway china, Crown Lynn became a hugely successful business and the largest pottery in the Southern Hemisphere.
The New Lynn factory closed in 1989, but their domestic ware is now one of New Zealand's hottest collectibles with over 600 items advertised on Trade Me at any one time. The Crown Lynn story is an irresistible mix of innovation, stunning products and vivid characters.
Illustrated throughout with photographs of china, from the most divine to the truly eccentric, Crown Lynn is a book with very wide appeal, from aunties and grannies to stylish young collectors. A catalogue of backstamps will make the book indispensable for collectors and antiques dealers.
