This is a great lot of Crown Pottery. The pattern features a bird in a bush but the pattern is listed only as CRP127. C.P. Co. was in production from the late 1890's until about 1962. This particular group is probably some of the earlier pieces. It shows a lot of crazing on many of the pieces like much of the semi vitreous dinnerware. The size of many of the pieces are confusing. Many of them appear to have been part of a child's set or may have been a salesman sample. Aside from the creamer and covered sugar, the rest of them are very small. The cups and saucers could have been demitasse, but I don't know for sure. The 30 pieces are as follows:
6 Plates (6 3/8") Could be bread and butter or child's dinner plates.
6 Saucers (5 1/8") Demitasse or child's set
6 Cups (2" tall - 2" opening) Demitasse or child's set
1 Covered Sugar (3 1/4" high with lid - counts 2 pieces)
1 Creamer (2 1/2" at tallest point - 4 1/2" spout to handle)
4 Tiny Plates or Butter Pats (3 1/8")
1 Round Bowl (6") Norman size sauce bowl or Child's Serving Bowl
1 Small Oval Bowl (4 3/8" x 5 3/4") Looks like a Child's Serving Bowl
1 Oval Plate (5" x 7 3/4") Looks like a Child's Platter
1 Covered Dish (4" tall with lid - 5" x 7 3/4" with handles) Looks like a
Child's Covered Casserole. (Counts as 2 pieces)
Most of the pieces are marked with the Crown logo and C.P. Co. If anyone knows what these pieces are supposed to be, we would appreciate knowing as well. All pieces are free of chips and cracks but some do have crazing. I can't find information confirming age, but I believe that they could be antique. Please email me with any questions.
