When it comes to china, I seem to be drawn to the ‘oriental’ patterns and this Rosina Queen’s trio in ‘Cathay’ design is one example. I could not find much info on this pottery house except that it was formerly known as George Warrilow and Sons, based in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, England from 1887 to 1940. In 1941, it became Rosina Queen’s China and this pottery house is still in production – 122 years on. I believe that this pattern was made in the 1960s. Please correct me if I am wrong.
When it comes to buying china, I don’t go looking for those ‘collector’ pieces (but I won’t knock one back if I see it!) but rather, I buy those designs that appeal to me and bring me joy. That is what a collection should do….bring the collector happy thoughts…..
