60s daisies [sold]

Crown Lynn 'Daisy' bowlsCrown Lynn ‘Daisy’ bowls
made in New Zealand, 1960s

Crown Lynn produced pottery in New Zealand from 1854-1989. By the 1960s Crown Lynn was producing export quality pottery with very funky 60s designs- of which this set ‘Daisy’ with those quintessential 60s flowers- was part. Crown Lynn was exported worldwide – which is why I frequently hear from people living in America who grew up with Crown Lynn crockery – and consequently it is now very collectible.

In researching the pattern I found the ‘Daisy’ pattern is quite rare- and increasingly hard to find. It was produced in only two colours- this rusty-orange and a pale yellow. The bowls are both in good vintage condition with only minor evidence of use in the past fifty years.

The bowls are for sale: $25
