Story: Collecting

Crown Lynn collection, 2013

New Zealand-made Crown Lynn porcelain has become highly collectable since the company's demise in 1989. These shelves of white Crown Lynn, interspersed with Royal Doulton toby jugs of The Beatles and Father Christmas, Kiwiana and postcards featuring Crown Lynn pottery, are a homage to a New Zealand product worthy of the term 'iconic'.
