Commemorative Ware

A recent gift has added another piece of local commemorative ware to our collection. In this case it is a small dish with an image of Market Lavington Church.

The dish – about 10cm across was made by Britannia Designs of Dartmouth. We estimate it to be mid to late twentieth century – that fits with the history of Britannia Designs. The church image may be loosely based on this earlier postcard.

One Response to “Commemorative Ware”

  1. John Buckland Says:

    I purchased one of these from a church stall at the fete at Clyffe Hall in 1973. It hung in my first marital home.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
