Hello everyone.

I have a Royal Winton Grimwades vase and I hoping that someone here can please help me to learn about it.  It measures about 5.5 inches high (14 cm) and a bit over 6 inches wide (16 cm).  

The markings on the bottom include a Royal Winton Grimwades stamp in blue that I think dates it to sometime around 1938, 1939 or 1940 because it says just England (without the 'made in') which I think started in 1938 and it does not have the A incorporated at the bottom which I think starting in 1941.  There are additional markings on the bottom that include a hand written in gold paint number 2232 with a number 4 with a period underneath, and an odd marking in blue paint that reminds me of a colon followed by a comma :, or if you look at it sideways a smiley face?  Also on the bottom in large capital lettering and incised into the porcelain under the glaze is CLAUDINA which I think may be the name of the pattern or the line of this type of ware.

There is an overall metallic lustre ware coating and the glaze is microcrazed all over which is consistent with this being from the late 1930s.  The floral designs are definitely all hand painted (you can see the brushstrokes and variations in the paint colors where it was painted thicker or thinner).  The palette of colors include metallic gold highlights and outlines, light green, forest green, olive green, dark blue, sky blue, rose red, orangish yellow, and lilac.  The effect is very striking.

I am used to seeing the Chintz ware lines of Royal Winton Grimwades, but this is quite different and seems to have been a higher quality line to compete with some of the other big makers quality lines of hand painted art deco styles.

I have tried searching the internet to learn more about this but have come up empty other than the dating of the backstamp.  I would welcome any information or just just your thoughts about this.  

Thank you ever so much.

Here are some photos as pictures are worth more than verbal descriptions:

Goddens says 1934-50, but it would more than likely be pre-war, done at the same
time as the earlier chintz wares.
Claudina is likely to be the shape or range of the pots,
the other marks are the decorators and gilders marks.
Don't recall seeing one quite like it before.

Thanks!  That was my initial thought, but then I took a closer look at the marking and noted that it reads "England" instead of "Made in England".  On the Royal Winton company website it indicates that the "Made In" was dropped in a marking that they used in 1938.  Also, it does not incorporate the 1941 change that includes the capital letter "A" across the flourish at the bottom to indicate the quality of their wares.  This is what is indicated on a more comprehensive listing on Deb's Cornucopia Winton Markings webpage (sorry for not putting a direct link here, but I am a new member here and the rules say I cannot use this function yet).

In looking at the markings on the bottom, what I am thinking is a number 4 followed by a period could perhaps instead be an X followed by a period?

I wouldn't try to be so precise about this. the gilders marks would be in gold,
who knows what they mean, the decorator's marks equally are in blue.
The age of austerity after the war forbade decoration of this sort, so it
will probably be pre-war, and essentially unattributable

The mark was used from 1951 onwards.
I suspect 1960s, Suffolk would be the mould/design name.

Hi....does anyone recognise this pattern please ? It's a Royal Winton Grimeades design, post 1951 given to us as a wedding gift in 1984. It looked aged then.  The giver was the widow of a great uncle, who had worked in the pottery industry for many decades,  designing pieces.  I have looked many times over the years, but have been unable to find anything similar.  I had wondered if it was something he worked on that never went into production ?
Thank you in advance for any help.

Well, that's what I said, 1950s. The pattern looks hand painted, and could
be almost impossible to identify, even if it had a name. I've never seen it before.

Royal Winton, Rubian, Grimwades, Staffs. Empty Royal Winton lusterware

Good day to everyone.

Royal Winton lusterware circa 1934-1950. Cup and saucer.

Royal Winton, Rubian, Grimwades, Staffs. Royal-10

Here is a citation from a short article dated March, 2000 about Royal Winton Grimwade history of production, if anybody interested: "In 1886, the Grimwade brothers - Leonard, Edward and Sydney Grimwade - founded Winton Pottery in Stoke-On-Trent, which is located in the Staffordshire district in England. It was not until 1930 when King George V and his wife, Queen Mary, started patronizing their products that they added the "Royal" to the name "Winton" and began using this phrase as a trade name.
Grimwades made chintz in more than 50 patterns between 1928 and 1963, when the firm was bought by the Howard Pottery Company of Shelton, Staffordshire.

Grimwades made chintz in more than 50 patterns between 1928 and 1963, when the firm was bought by the Howard Pottery Company of Shelton, Staffordshire. In those 35 or so years of production, Grimwades produced a veritable flower garden of designs, and today's collectors are very interested in all of them.

A Marguerite Chintz candy box. The Marguerite pattern was made both pre and post war,
and I beieve had the longest production run of all the chintz patterns, so not that rare,
but this is not a shape that turns up so often.

"Ye Olde water mill", probably the best modelled and
most colourful of all the "cottage wares". If marked, it
is usually with "Rubian Art pottery", but more often
than not, it is just a feint "made in England" as here.
The purple roof version was always considered rarer.
