The Salisbury Bone China pottery was a china manufacturing company operating at the Salisbury Works, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent. From 1927 to 1961 the company was named Salisbury Crown China Works, and in 1961 the company was taken over by Thomas Poole and moved to Chadwick Street, Longton. It closed finally closed c.1970.

This pendant is crafted from a single beautiful cake plate. I have been unable to find out anything about this beautiful pattern - it's name or date - so in my head I have always called this 'Flannel Flower'. I believe it to date from the 1960's. 


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

This rectanglar pendant measures 25mm 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"

Salisbury Bone China 'Flannel flowers' round pendant

  • 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.
