Crownford China Company
Crownford China Company appears to have been a wholesale /distributing / importing company based in New York City, active during the period of approximately 1964-1973. Crownford sold many types of decorative items made of china, pottery and glass. A variety of souvenir plates, reproduction milk bottles, glass kitchen canister sets, liquor decanters and other items were sold and are found frequently throughout the United States.
One of the most commonly found items with this name on the base is a reproduction “Thatcher’s” milk bottle, which was evidently produced in several attractive colors including medium cobalt blue, green, amber, and clear glass.
All (or most) of the bottles were, as far as can be ascertained, made for Crownford by an unidentified glass manufacturer located in Italy. Most of the glass items seem to have been made circa 1964-1970. Many of them have dates and the notation “Made in Italy”embossed on the bottom.
