It would have seemed unthinkable thirty years ago, but Crown Lynn ceramics are now collector’s items. And while the creamy swan vase or McAlpine refrigerator jug are instantly recognisable in any hipster home, this book uncovers many more desirable gems.
From the beautiful simplicity of the Kelston beehive mixing bowls to the kiwi kitsch of the Wharetana ashtrays, it’s easy to understand the contemporary appeal of many of the company’s designs. This is the definitive tome for anyone interested in starting, or expanding, their own collection of Crown Lynn.
