A dear friend of mine gave me these pieces after her plate was unfortunately broken, so this jewellery has a special place in my heart.  

Royal Winton is an English brand of ceramics, made by Grimwades Limited, a Stoke-on-Trent based company founded in 1885. The brand is particularly associated with chintzware, but also produced beautifully handpainted rural scenes such as the one on this lovely plate. The pattern is numbered, rather than named, 9407/1, and shows fronds of delicate flowers standing tall beside a path and a birdhouse.

The backstamp, and the general condition (note the crazing) of the china, tells me that this piece is very old and has lived a full life. This plate was manufactured between 1930 and 1934. 


As with all Goosehouse Designs jewellery, this unique pendant is individually handcrafted by me in my studio.


The silver in this pendant is sterling silver, and is stamped with the .925 stamp.

This rectanglar pendant measures 30mm x 15mm x 5mm.

The pendant comes with your choice of necklace -

wire collar 46cm/18"

box chain 56cms/22"

link chain 66cms/26"

snake chain 70cms/27"

  • The vintage china I use in my jewellery pieces is all recycled from pieces found at garage sales and op. shops, or through vintage dealers, who are happy to pass on some of their less-than-perfect items. I carefully cut out the selected section of china, shape it by hand, then grind the edges nice and smooth. I securely fix the piece into the sterling silver blank, then grout it so it stays firmly in place.
    As with all artisan jewellery, some care needs to be taken to keep your piece in as-new condition.
    The vintage china in your piece may well be up to a hundred years old, and needs to be treated accordingly. It is not recommended that you swim or shower whilst wearing your jewellery, nor that you wear it gardening or playing sport or any other activity where the item may get badly knocked. China is breakable, after all.
    The sterling silver ring and earring hooks are easily adjustable, but care must be taken not to bend them too quickly or too sharply. As with all metals, if they are worked roughly they may break. 

    The sterling silver bezel will enjoy a regular simple polish with a quality silvercloth. If you do use silver polish, do not get it on the china or the grout. Do not use strong chemicals on your jewellery.
