The famous Crown Ducal name refers to wares produced by A.G. Richardson & Co. Ltd in Staffordshire. They moved from Tunstall in 1934 to the Britannia Pottery in Cobridge, where this beautiful cruet was made in the 1960s.
The three pieces are decorated in a ribbed pattern and finished in a glossy deep honey-coloured glaze. A small flake to the rim of the mustard pot is unseen when the lid is in position. Clean underglaze crazing, commensurate with age and exaggerated by the photograph !
The shape of the salt, and pepper pots fits perfectly into the hand. Complete with stoppers.
The stand provides a nest which cradles the salt and pepper pots which are positioned either side of the mustard pot.
Stands produced by Wyncraft, have their own collectibillilty and are often sought after in their own right. They are made from teak and gold-coloured metal. Wyncraft provided stands to support items from various ceramic firms including Crown Devon, Kirkhams and Lord Nelson.
