Blackbird has spoken, with the op-shop show-off. This is a little Crown Lynn Fiesta saucer, quite the collectible! It's a popular pattern among New Zealand Crown Lynn collectors, this happy little find set me back a whopping $0.50c. It was in absolutely perfect, never used condition. Once I was home I realised that I'd never thrift a set of these, or even part of a set, so I decided to let it go again (before it went through the dishwasher or it got chipped). I sold it on Trademe for, well a massive profit! Just a few cents under $40! I couldn't quite believe it (I set a $1 reserve), I couldn't imagine spending that much on a saucer, but I like to think the winner of the auction was pleased!
