I should like to know how I can learn more about Corona Ware china. I have
several pieces with the Rosetta pattern # 5342. It was produced by Shancock and
Sons, Stoke on Trent, England.

Good question and many thanks. There is no space or period between the 's'and
'h'. To further describe the name, it is printed within a banner under a
picture of the English Crown

Ron, is it a capital 'S' and then a lower case 'h' or what?

I can check the Hancock mark for you tomorrow (it's evening time here)
have a piece in the shop, but for the life of me, I cannot recall the
style of the back stamp at the moment.

In the meantime, maybe someone else will jump in. :)

>Kindest regards,

Ron, check closely for a period between the "S" and "H".   I
believe Ronnie is absolutely correct on this one:
Sampson Hancock (& Sons)
Stoke, Staffordshire, England
Printed mark used on earthenware
1912-1937 (company in business 1858-1937)

If you can find a copy of Kovel's New Dictionary of Marks
on Pottery and Porcelain, you should see an example
of your mark (look in the index under "Hancock.")

Ron, here's that piece I referred to yesterday.

This is a different pattern to your piece (??)  ... this piece is
called "RubensWare" decorated with a pomegranate pattern (like a
Moorcroft rip-off, but without the Moorcroft slip-work) There are many
Hancock patterns, I'm not familiar with them all (what makes one more
collectible than another? ~ don't know) however, over recent years I
have noticed the price of Hancock stuff go steadily up. WHY? haven't a
clue ... a vase say 10 years ago, around 10-15 pounds in the fairs,
the same vase today, maybe 60-100 pounds, just one of those fickle
things, I suppose. At least we can clear your question on the mark.:)
