Over a period of two decades Nicholas Pine and his wife Lynda set about repopularising crested china, authoring and publishing numerous books, appearing on television and radio, as well as contributing to antique journals and newspapers. Nicholas is currently conducting research into his early days in the Goss / crested china industry and will soon begin writing his memoirs about his part in the repopularisation of the crested china craze, along with many amusing tales and anecdotes about some of the characters involved. If you or perhaps your parents were one of his customers during the 1970's / 1980's and have any stories or information that you feel might be useful, then please email Nicholas directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and you never know, your story might be included in his new book.
Goss & Crested China Ltd is now managed by Nicholas and Lynda's eldest son, Andrew, who returned to the UK to take over the business after working in Australia and south-east Asia for nine years. Andrew worked for Goss & Crested China Ltd from 2000 - 2007, and is proud to be the second generation running the family business. Andrew is working on a number of new projects for the business which will be unveiled over the coming months, including the new generation of monthly crested china sales catalogues and eCatalogues, a new computerised wants list database. Long term, plans include organising guided coach tours of the potteries by the company founder, Nicholas Pine, as well as a few other innovations that we're keeping under wraps until they're ready for product launch.
Email or write to Andrew to receive details of the crests / shapes / models that you collect. All china is dispatched on approval, whether a new customer or not, with payment only being made after you have examined the china yourself in the comfort of your own home. Any crested china not required can simply be returned. Payment can be made by cheque, bank transfer or by PayPal.
