Souvenirs, Victorian, Edwardian And Beyond
Beloved of travelers, momentos and reminders of Grand Tours, travels and holidays have always been treasured.
Especially during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, Crested China pieces bore names, shields and funny mottos for various towns and watering holes.
The pieces were often figural and fun associations with the places visited, that folks loved to bring home as souvenirs.
They are also classed sometimes as Fairings, as many were also available at fetes, carnivals and fairs.
Nowadays, nostalgia and memories of time with friends in favourite places are the norm.
