    The mark on the bottom of this little basket was used from 1906 until 1948 by the Crown Staffordshire Porcelain Co. Ltd. (aka Crown Staffordshire China Co. Ltd.). They were manufacturers of high grade porcelain at Minerva Works, Fenton, Staffordshire, England.

    Fenton is one of the six towns of the Stoke-on-Trent conurbation which were federated in 1910.

    When I saw this little basket I had the opportunity to buy three of them but this was the best to my eye. I intended it to be a birthday gift to my mother in June this year.

    The 'woven basket' was product produced as a theme to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the founding of the firm. This little basket probably dates to the late 1940's. This example is based on four strands woven in porcelain.

    "In 1946 the Heron Cross factory was purchased to allow increased postwar production of decorated wares, primarily for export. The bottle ovens there were replaced by tunnel ovens. In 1945 the company was one of those permitted to recommence manufacture of 'fancies' for the home market. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the founding of the firm, woven china baskets had been introduced. These constituted an important export ware and were marketed under the slogan "A May basket for every bride."
    http://www.thepotteries.org/allpotters/322_crown.htm

    The basket has gilded branch/twig handles, yellow flowers and measures approximately 4.5"/11.5 cm long.

    Oh, .... I forgot to add that I did give it to Mum on her 91st birthday.
    It now is in her curio cabinet.

    Thanks KAREN!

      In one post I learnt some history, saw a beautiful basket that has survived intact, and had to visit the dictionary to look up conurbation.

      Great post thanks. I'm sorry it didn't get to your Mum.
