Anyone have any info on these dishes?

Was there a full dinner service available?

I won this on eBay recently.

From what information i can gather, Metallised Bone China was mainly manufactured as Hotel & Restaurant Ware...

Could this have been produced for use in the Beachcomber?

Didya win Pikey?



"Just 6" x 3 1/2" this dish bears a WEDGWOOD mark with the PORTLAND vase above. Also reads METALLISED BONE CHINA - Made in England - 2BS 80 4034. I must admist I cannot find a name for this deisgn - looks AZTEC or Maori to me - perhaps you can help? In MINT condition - I have 4 of these if you are interested. I will combine postage. Payment PAYPAL, cheque UK or Postal Order"

When I have them in my hands I'll decide if I want to trade - I need to make sure I get one for my collection first!

You lucky Bar-steward!

3 mugs and now 2 dishes it's proving to be quite the year for Beachcomber finds.

Well all four have arrived safe and sound, so I now have three available for trades.
