Right..having some trouble with the post/image upload process...perhaps as I am on a Mac? I'm not sure. If you CAN see the image I have posted of this CrownFord pot/planter, I would love to hear your thoughts as to when it was made etc. Many thanks.

Argh, I am entering the image file of the base, but clearly I am doing something wrong. My apologies...trying to figure it out.

Click Preview before Send, to double check you've uploaded the right image.



Is it Royal Crownford?
If so there's a page on The Potteries website http://www.thepotteries.org/allpotters/1057.htm

I have no idea why it keeps uploading the same image file when I have selected one of the base instead! For now, it says: CrownFord Made in England then an ed number E2492

I suspect you still have the old image code on your clipboard. You need to copy the new image code by holding down the control (Ctrl) and C keys to copy. Then paste it.

They may not still be in operation. It might be better to contact one of the museums or County Council archivists in Staffordshire.
