Crown Ducal 8 side Dish
October 18, 2006 12:36pm CST
I have a Crown Ducal Dish which I believe comes from the 20's or 30's. It is 8 side and is approx. 17cms in diameter across the rim and 8 cms deep. The bottom part of the dish approx. 3 cms. is in solid yellow, the upper portion approx 5 cms is a border of pictures depicting sellers from possibly the early 18th century. Underneath each picture are words which describe what they are selling, eg. Cats Meat, Sweet Lavender, Milk Ho, Turnips & Carrots Ho and also Oyez Oyez from a town crier. The base has a stamp of a crown, underneath this are the words Crown Ducal Ware England, also stamped into the base above this is a number 5. I would appreciate any help anyone can give, in identifying this piece.
