The most highly underrated and lamentably ignored treasure trove of Canadian heritage memorabilia has to be the fantastic souvenir china ware of Canadian places that was produced in the early 20th century.From the 1890s to c 1930, an enormous amount of small souvenir china ware was produced for sale in Canada, as the expansion of the railways, and road, and steamboat travel, took thousands of mostly urban Canadians, on sight seeing trips that were unheard of only a generation earlier.The souvenirs also had to appeal to the eye, and appear, at least, to be somewhat utilitarian.After all this was the generation that had hardly ever heard of leisure time before.
In 1913, King George V and Queen Mary paid a visit to one of the showrooms where the Queen purchased a Winton Teaset, catapulting the pottery into its great success.
Another popular Royal Winton collectible is Cottage Ware, which consists of teapots and table accessories that look like English cottages.
Royal Winton, originally named Grimwade Brothers, began in 1885 in England.
In 1995, Royal Winton was purchased and its name reverted back to Grimwades Limited trading as Royal Winton.
Since this acquisition, the company has reintroduced some of the Chintz patterns.
