This antique piece is In first class condition.
Back stamp used from 1906.
Crown Staffordshire was established in1889 at the Minerva Works, Fenton in Staffordshire. The eagle-eyed will notice that the backstamp says 'ESTd 1801' - this is a bit cheeky. It was in fact the the Minerva Works that were established in 1801 not Crown Staffordshire, so not a lie but a stretching of the truth! A name change to read 'China' instead of 'Porcelain' was made in 1948.
A most delightful piece.
