- Made in: Staffordshire, England
- Vintage: 1970's - early 1980's
- Details: This is a gorgeous set of 3 porcelain planters/pots in a very pleasing hexagonal shape. There are 3 pots in all, from smallest to largest, all featuring a beautiful purple Iris. The pots are like a bone-white (not stark white) and the Iris is done in the softest, most soothing colors we've seen in a while. It hs purple, yellow, brown and green on the leaves. Absolutely gorgeous detail! They have nicely designed small feet so they don't sit flat on your surface. The pots do not have a drainage hole, so they are great for indoor use, however, they are marked where a hole can be drilled with a ceramic drill bit. All three have the brand stamp with the crown and W and it reads: "Royal Winton, Fine Ceramic Ware, Made in Staffordshire England". The set of 3 is heavy, some of the price reflects the shipping costs we incur. We've seen the mid-size pot sell for as much as $50, we feel our price is very fair. This set of 3, would make a great addition to a sun-room, patio, garden or inside the house to hold flowers or greenery (faux or real). Split them up for gifts with a plant inside, or as a hostess gift, would be lovely.

Royal Winton is an English brand, very well known and highly regarded for quality. They manufacture earthenware and fine bone china, tableware, and other decorative pieces. The company was founded by Leonard Lumsden Grimwade and his older brother, Sidney Richard Grimwade, in 1885. The brothers named their company "Grimwade Brothers", however, there was an advertisement in the 'Potteries gazette' in 1929, calling it "Royal Winton" and the name stuck, it became their established trade name. Royal Winton is best known for their "Chintz" patterns. In the 1980's the company was acquired by Coloroll, it has since gone thru some mergers and buy-outs and is now merged with Duchess China Ltd in the UK.
