Description

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.
