Crested china is a type of souvenir-ware, produced in the Potteries by the firm of W.H. Goss and many others, which was at the height of its popularity during the Great War. An enormous range of patriotic and military subjects was depicted, from armoured cars to zeppelins. Here Dixon's own ‘ebay’ collection is combined with crested china items from the Staffordshire museum consortium’s collections, and displayed on the cardboard boxes that the pieces were posted in.
