With very few specimens of this body style found, a soup tureen has provided the most details. It was potted in semi-porcelain. The name was derived from the corner embossing that resembles kingly trappings topped by a crown. Godden lists a Smith, Ford and Jones pottery in business for a short time prior to 1895. It is possible that the marking we know of as S. F. & J. refers to this pottery as the general characteristivs of this body style are consistent with this era.
