10pcs Royal Doulton England 50’s Wardair Aviation Wd Repton Bone China Coasters:
10PCS Vintage Royal Doulton England (c1950’s) Mid-Century Modern Wardair Aviation WD Repton Bone China Coasters; Marked For Authenticity.
Originally handcrafted by Royal Doulton of England specifically for Wardair Canada Airlines, these were made to meet the high airline industry standard of quality; produced only until 1955. Wardair Canada eventually became Canadian Airlines in 1989 and the luxurious mindset slowly diminished with time joining other commercial airlines. These pieces are a great historical example of the luxury we once took part in with the birth of commercial aviation.
The Repton pattern features formal brown, tan and salmon assortments of arches, vines, flowers and leaves (a hint of Art Deco); accented with hand painted gold rims. Bright, bold and glossy. Side note, these pictures indicate a very soft brown color, but it's a bit darker; the best color representation is picture number 2 which is a close up of the pattern. A must have for any Royal Doulton collector / aviation enthusiast. These retail (in used condition) on Replacements.com for $7.49/each!
Each piece measures 5” in diameter and .5” tall; very low ring back foot to protect surfaces from extreme temperatures and/or moisture from the beverages sitting atop. High quality bone china. Each of these 10 pieces are stamped with the Royal Doulton crown / lion backstamp as well as "WD”.
Excellent, unused condition; these look to have never been used. (Only transferred during moving or in preparation of being photographed.) Please reach out with any additional questions you may have once you have reviewed all photographs.
