Product Description

Some excellent research by White Star china historian Russ Upholster has revealed that the name of this pattern (often inaccurately called “Wisteria” or “Gothic Arch”) is actually “Crown.”  It’s a fitting name because of the 20 turquoise “crowns” around the plate.

Made of fine-bone china and dated November, 1889, this lovely piece is one of the earliest ever seen for this pattern.  This dates to the beginning of this famous pattern and is proof it was used in the 19th century by the White Star Line.  It was introduced with the RMS Majestic, which entered service that year.  Note how the pattern changed slightly over time.  The color is slightly different and the scolloped edges extend a bit further out from the turquoise.  Makes a VERY nice example to display with your White Star plates from the 1910s-1930s.  Made by the original manufacturer Brownfields and measures about 9″ in diameter.  Excellent condition.
