Royal Winton was one of the brand names used by Grimwades Ltd., which worked from three Stoke potteries - Winton, Upper Hanley and Elgin. Production began in 1900. Previously they were known as Grimwade Bros. from 1886-1900.
These three fabulous lustre dishes with one integral handle were made around the mid 30s/40s. Formed to resemble a lotus flower or water lily, the inside of each is decorated in a mid-yellow lustre. The exteriors each come in a different lustre colour - pale green, burnt orange and pale pink.
Some clean age-related glaze crazing. A flake to the top of the petals of two dishes. A small area to the burnt orange dish which was missed when the lustre was applied. These are mentioned for completeness.
Dish x 3 - 2.625 inches | 65mm high x 4.75 inches | 120mm max width
These eye-catching and unusual items would make a beautiful display or could be used to serve olives, nuts or sweetmeats perhaps. Another idea might be to fill with potpourri or for use (for delicate hands only) as finger bowls !
Three stunning items.
