About this object

One page full colour brochure advertising Crown Lynn porcelain hardware, which includes door handles and bathroom fittings. The door handles come in Tradition, Classic and Module shapes, and Optima, Charm, Heritage, Trend, Valencia and White patterns. The bathroom fittings are available in Debonair, Plain white and Fleur de lis patterns.

Door handles were made by Crown Lynn's sister company, Crown Lynn Technical Ceramics Ltd. The company had for a long time concentrated its core business on the production of ceramics for industrial applications and produced a large variety of dry press electrical insulators from porcelain-like vitrifiable clay.

The expansion at Crown Lynn through the 1960s and 70s saw more products being made using the technical factory. Soap dishes, towel end rails and reflective road markers were some of the new products added to the range of wares being produced. The products however only ever amounted to a small part of what was largely a business supported by the ceramics it made for the electrical industry.
