Crown Devon Vase
Crown Devon Vintage Hand Decorative rouge red vase with gold Gilt. Vase Height 14.5cm. The Crown Devon story started in the early 1870s when Simon Fielding put his life savings into the Railway Works in Sutherland Street, Stoke-on-Trent. But within a few years, the bailiffs came in and it was Simon’s son Abraham, who stepped in to save the company. Under Abraham’s management the company flourished and expanded, introducing a vast range of new products. The Crown Devon back-stamp appeared on a number of patterns from the 1880s although it was 1912 before the Railway Works was renamed The Devon Pottery. The name Crown Devon was synonymous with quality. It was a sad day when the Pottery closed in 1982 but now, 15 years later, the products of the factory in Sutherland Street are sought after more than they have ever been.
