I have a sneaky suspicion (although I can't confirm it because my main reference English pottery mark encyclopedia does not mention the CROWN CHATEAU trade-mark at all) that the CROWN CHATEAU CHINA is a pottery marking of Wild Bros
- 1904 to 1927.
They were china manufacturers operating out of the Edensor Crown China Works and the Salisbury Crown China Works in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent.
They had several different marks mostly incorporating a crown device, and sometimes using the initials J. S. W. Latterly, the J S W was intertwined beneath the crown logo.
