Crown Lynn “Fabrique” Pattern Bread Plates
This set of two Crown Lynn “Fabrique” pattern bread plates were very popular in Australia and New Zealand in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Since the beginning of World War II in 1939, only essential goods were imported into New Zealand. By December 1940, no imported crockery was available in the country. By the early 1950’s Crown Lynn mass-produced contemporary tableware and became the Southern Hemisphere’s largest producer of household pottery and remained so up to at least 1978.
The gloss finish plates dishes are simple in style. The pattern is a grey fine thatching with irregular line widths. The backstamp has a picture of a crown. Underneath the crown reads “Pat. No 393 Fabrique by Crown Lynn New Zealand – Detergent and Acid Resisting Colours”
The bread and butter plates measure Width 17.5cm.
The dishes are in a fantastic condition for their vintage. Still a high gloss finish and no obvious tarnishes or scratches.
