A view of Allestree Lake by Dean
Thank you to all who have emailed in response to this website.. I have responded to points raised and added to the content, particularly regarding the pattern pages. I recommend recent additions to “Presentation Pieces”.
Please note that I do not give advice on value.
It is great to note how ebay sellers are increasingly including pattern numbers and names when listing. As this website is freely available to all it should enable buyers to find the piece(s) they need. Such accuracy also has the advantage of finding relevant comparable transactions in the “sold listings”. This can be accessed using the advanced search option to provide a useful indication of what you might expect your item to sell for.
I shall be adding a photographic archive shortly to include photographs of the workforce during the period. I believe that some images have not previously been published. Should anyone wish to submit photographs to be uploaded on this website with details of the department worked in and approximate dates I would be delighted to include them. I shall include more information relating to the history of the business. Identifying the numerous tableware shapes is extremely difficult, and I look forward to adding Information that should be of assistance.
