Royal Sandringham Fine Bone China - Antique Bone China Page Query: I have a small vase approx 4 inches high with Royal Sandringham fine bone china made in England underneath pottery mark.

I have tried searching for this manufacturer on the net but have not had any success.

Any information would be helpful




Answer by Peter (admin)

Hi Lesley

Thanks for your interesting query. You have got me going on this one. There is virtually no English maker I can't look up - even if they are small and I have not heard of them before.

No other English bone china maker query has got me stumped before. However, I can't find anything in my encyclopaedias on Sandringham China and it is the only maker I have never been able to find listed on the excellent online database. The other information online is very scant.

I have found a few pieces of Sandringham bone china for sale at ebay - to find them, go to my China Replacements page and scroll down to the link to eBay (this will get you into the right place for a deep level search)

China Replacements

From there put in this search:

"SANDRINGHAM CHINA" (Include title and description)

There you will see perhaps 7 or 8 items such as classic bone china tea cups and saucers and commemorative plates by a maker called "Sandringham Fine Bone China" (I didn't see any 'Royal Sandringham' at all).

In the mix you will see several of the big makers and famous china manufacturers with items called "Sandringham", ie patterns and different ranges - makers include Wedgwood, Johnson Brothers, Coalport, Royal Worcester, Paragon etc. So they are all at it. Obviously the association with the Royal 'Sandringham' Estate has a good association for the china manufacturers.

To my mind there are two main possibilities of who Sandringham China are. They could be either a sub-brand of another more famous maker like Colclough or Hudson & Middleton (made for a particular purpose). Or they could be a very small maker with a relatively short lived history. My guess would be c.1950 to c.1970.

I would be interested to find out more. Thanks for flagging this one up.

Let's call this one 'work-in-progress'.

An anonymous visiter has said:-

"Sandringham is made by Wedgewood".


Further comment by Peter (admin)

Many thanks for your kind contribution.

However, as I said in my main comment, many of the better known china manufacturing names have sub-branding associated with the word "Sandringham" including Wedgwood, Johnson Brothers, Coalport, Royal Worcester, Paragon etc. All of these names except Worcester have been or are part of the Waterford Wedgwood Group.

So it would be inaccurate, in my view, to say "Sandringham is made by Wedgewood".

Perhaps you could say who you are and what your base of knowledge is and expand further.

Sandringham China
by: Patricia

I just picked up a cup and saucer today from our local thrift store.

It just has the words Sandringham Bone China Made in England on the bottom of both saucer and Cup. Also the gold markings that look like 2007 on the bottom of the cup.

I too, can't find information about this 'company;.

Sandringham China
by: Sandra

I also have a cup and saucer set called the "You & I series" but cannot find anything on the internet regarding this. It looks like it tells a story of a couple who meet and go dancing. The style of the couple I guess from the design looks around the 1950's. Unfortunately I broke a saucer during a house move but wasn't looking to sell the set anyway just to find some history about it. If anyone knows anything about this series I would be very interested.


You and I Series
by: Jo

I have two small plates from the You & I Series - Sandringham Fine Bone China. I have been searching for more pieces as I really like them can anyone help?

Sandringham-Pink, Wedgewood Bone China
by: Lynn

I have an 8 dinner plates, cups and saucers, large serving platter, oval serving bowl and gravy boat with the "made in England" mark and the W3510 mark. I can't find anything on the gravy boat or the oval serving bowl, though it has the same markings as the other pieces. Does anyone have any idea what the value is of the gravy boat and serving bowl?

Wedgwood Sandringham
by: Lynn

My Sandringham china is marked as Wedgwood

by: Lynn

Hi, I didn't intend to leave off my name on the previous email referring to 'Sandringham is made by Wedgwood', sorry. My Sandringham fine bone china markings show that it is Wedgwood Fine Bone China made in England. It does not have Royal in the name.

In a previous email I said I have an 8 place setting but also have an oval vegetable bowl and a gravy boat with the same markings but cannot find anything which gives me the value of these 2 pieces.

Sandringham still unsolved
by: Peter (admin)

Dear Mary

Thanks for the email prompt on this one. Send me your pics and I will post them with your comments (above). The 1959 date is great evidence of provenance.

This mystery maker is still one of our outstanding unsolved cases. We don’t know who the brand ‘Sandringham bone china’ was made by, and we know nothing about the ‘You and I’ range, apart from what our visitors have written.

Some of the dates seem to suggest recent production, so this may be a small maker still surviving today, or a marketing brand of one of the bigger names. My copy of Goddens goes up the the mid 1960’s and had Sandringham have been an older make would have almost certainly listed it, so this, again suggests a maker from the mid to latter part of the 20th century.

Mary's pics arrived so I uploaded them below:-

You & I

I have 5 cups and saucers and plate of this series. Each one is different each cup trio has a couple doing something different On the bottom it has written
Fine bone china
" you & I"

They look 1950 ish to me but would love more information!

sandringham, you and I series
by: maryg

I understand from a china supplier at my local market that sandringham was Stoke on trent maker. There were 3 patterns from c 1938 to 1960, you and I , a circus pattern ,and a third one whose name she cannot remember. I hope this might help rather than confuse!

You & i
by: Wendy

I have just this morning purchased 6 side plates from a local British Red Cross shop.They are beautiful &I would love to collect the whole set.

by: Anonymous

I also have some Sandringham fine bone china.

I also need replacments.

I've come to the conclusion it's made by Royal Albert.A slightly different design, maybe a cheaper edition for the less affluent.

by: Anonymous

I disagree, in all my research I don't think it has anything to do with royal Albert. I agree with the above, it's a smaller manufacturer that probably started pre 1950's.

Cottage scenes
by: Sheila G.

I bought four beautiful plates from the Sandringham Collection yesterday.
They are marked 'Designed by Hanson' with 'Bridgeman Art Library' also being printed on the back, beneath the artists' name.
Three (painted by Helen Allingham) depict country cottages with a lady and child/children, while one (by E.W. Waite) depicts an old farmhouse with animals grazing.
My attempts at including photos here for your appreciation, have unfortunately not been successful.
I am interested to know if anyone has similar items, and whether this is a vintage or more modern collection?

Kind regards,
Sheila G.


Update by Peter (admin)

A big thanks to Sheila who sent her pics to me as requested.

The clue on the backstamp gives the maker as

"Designed by Hanson, Rose Cottage, Haslemere" (see image below).

The painter of these plates is "Helen Allingham (private collection, Bridgeman Art Library)"

So, the backstamp in full says

"Sandringham Collection - Bone China - Designed by Hanson, Rose Cottage, Haslemere, painted by Helen Allingham (private collection, Bridgeman Art Library)"

Does this clue give us any idea who exactly who Hanson, Rose Cottage, Haslemere is?


Still no idea who this maker is....

But big thanks to Sheila for this very helpful clue.

Re Sandringham china NEW

I bought an Elizabethan china cup and saucer .I then came across a Sandringham China cup and saucer same cup and saucer shape different flowers but identical otherwise.
So could Sandringham been part of Elizabethan china or vice versa?
