I always like adding crested regimental china to my collection and last year I was given some excellent items of china from the East Yorkshire Regiment, with a selection of plates, bowls and saucers:
These are made of white vitreous china with red decoration in the form of a patterned edge:
And the regimental crest in the form of an eight-pointed star with a rose in the centre and a garter belt with the name of the regiment on it:
The items are actually from two different batches and manufactured by two different companies. The first being Alfred Meakin:
And the second Falcon Ware:
These almost certainly date from between the two wars and would have become surplus to requirement when the regiment was merged with the West Yorkshire Regiment in 1958. Having been a member of the East Yorkshire Regiment Living History over the last ten years, this set of plates is particularly pleasing to have in my collection.
