    I have a set of Grindely England surrounded by a green leaf oval open at the top. There apears to be a guilders mark I with a 2 on some of the plates. The set is white with a narrow gold band with any handles on the turreens and cups also gold. Can you help me identify this pattern so I may replace the missing items in the set. Thank You, H.

    I have a Grindley teapot with ship mark c 1936-54. small green, blue and yellow. Base says what looks like Hand Painted Daboade, Patent applied for. Excellent condition. I have trawled around on the internet but can’t find this little pot on the auction sites. Any idea of expected selling price today.

    I have an oval platter, two soup tureens with one lid, and a gravy boat, all previously belonging to my mother. This pattern was her wedding china. It is called cream petal by grindley. It has a gold leaf pattern with a red stripe. Do you have any other matching items?

  • Dairymaid73

    I am trying to identify some Grindley Creampetal crockery that was given to my grandparents for their wedding in 1941. It is hand painted with 1 yellow and 2 orange flowers in a cluster along a spindley brown twig (like a lighting fork pattern) and grey/green leaves along the branch. Spaced evenly around the edge are 6 thin orange brush lines x 5 which match up on the veg bowl and lid and are on the plates also. I am looking for some bowls and other things that may belong to the set – there are only plates and 2 veg serving bowls.

  • Heartlessemogirl

    A reference was made earlies to the marlborough creampetal grindley england. This was reds from gold, an perhaps it is higest development, is seen in the brilliant cream-back-plates of the marlborough maker keep-land peroids. The shade of very gold . As enamal the tulip colour had is most wonderful applied to flower, drapery and really it is far moredecorative than any other colour…

  • Linda NS

    All the descriptions of Marlborough Grindly England Royal Petal, do not begin to describe the dish set I have of my Mother’s. It is Burgundy around the rim with gold coloured flowers draped under a flounce. For the gravy boat plate it has 10 flowers around the rim. Didn’t see it on replacements.com and would like to replace a few missing pieces. Anyone have any sites to recommend for replacement?
    Thanks, Linda

    Hi. I have an incomplete Grindley china set with a green flower pattern
    that comprises the following items: 12 soup dishes, 23 meat dishes, 10
    fruit dishes, 2 fruit bowls and 3 serving dishes, acquired by my late
    grandmother as a wedding gift in the 1920s. Some minor glaze
    contractions and discoloured crackles developped over time give them a
    vintage age look that make it the perfect collector’s item. If anyone can help me get a quote or sell it please respond.

    Always on the lookout for any Grindley Gardenia items. I have some pieces, but always looking to add to my modest collection. My great grandmother had these dishes, so the pattern is of purely sentimental value.

    I was in a flea market, and saw a odd set of a setting called the Lichtfield. I have the small veggie bowl of this set, but haven’t been able to find anything even close to the pattern. After looking at all 4 plates I found a name called ”
    the Litchield”. Does anyone know of this pattern?Blue, yellow and orange Nastirnums(sp), painted on with greenery.

  • Jennie

    Ive just bought some Grindley China from an antiques shop for my dresser. It has the logo on the back and says ‘cream petal’ but struggling to find the missing pieces to my set online. Anyone know the pattern name? They are cream with a plain gold band around the edges and very dainty bunches of light pink flowers. A lot less intricate than some of the other grindley ware ive found! Thanks

The plates are cream in colour with a scalloped edge They are edged in gold with a a green circle about an half an inch from the edge and vertical lines in gold, green and orange meeting the green circle from the edge. They have Kelvin 4 written on the bottom of the plates etc. I am eager to find where I could buy a meat plate and a small plate. Can anyone shed any light please?

    I have been given a collection of Grindley Imperial Creampetal crockery which was my great Aunt’s. It has the sailboat stamp c.1936-1954. Thing is, although I’ve noticed people want this stuff, I don’t. Where can I go to be able to sell this on? I have quite a few pieces including 2 serving dishes with lids, a gravy boat, 6 bowls, 6 teaplates 5 dinner plates, 2 different sized serving plates, 4 coffee cups and 6 saucers. Please do email me and let me know what I can do with them.
