Pin Dish, New Zealand International Exhibition 1906-1907About this object
This is a small pin dish from the New Zealand international Exhibition, which was held in Christchurch from 1 November 1906 to 15 April 1907.
Despite the substantial financial loss incurred by the Exhibition, it was deemed to be a great success, with nearly 2 million visitors attending.
William Henry Goss (1833–1906), owner of the Falcon pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, and his sons, Adolphus and Victor were early developers of souvenir china items. Goss china was immensely popular and, it is said that at the turn of the century 90% of homes in the UK had at least one piece of Goss china.
