About this object

Black and white photograph showing Miss Helen Iggo making a presentation to Peter Cree, while Barry Grant, Assistant Sales Manager at Crown Lynn, looks on. A sign behind advertises "Free replacements."

This was probably a publicity shot taken to promote Crown Lynn’s ‘Free replacement’ policy. The policy allowed people to have free replacements for accidental breakages of pieces in their ‘stock patterns.’ Initially there were five stock patterns: ‘Autumn splendour’, ‘Golden fall’, ‘Shasta daisy’, ‘Green bamboo’ and ‘Fashion rose’ although the number of stock patterns was soon increased. The scheme was advertised in magazines like ‘New Zealand Woman’s Weekly’, and sales skyrocketed.
