Johnson of Australia, ‘happy days’


$350 AD

Very collectable and rare to find such volume, too nice to break down.


10 dinner plates, 10 cups and saucers, salt and pepper shaker and 6 side dishes (1 dinner plate has a small chip). The rest are in perfect condition.

Johnson of Australia were a division of Johnson Brothers England – one of the largest producers of domestic pottery in the world in their time. Like the English parent company they produced a huge range of tough utilitarian domestic ware.

Production for Johnson in Australia commenced in 1957 out of the Sovereign Pottery factory based in Croydon, Queensland.

Their extensive range of Australian crockery, very popular in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, mainly used a speckled cream ceramic, featuring a range of floral motifs. Common flowers used were daises and sunflowers.

This particular design shown here features the Happy Days pattern, of colourful wildflowers.

collect from West End 4101 or delivery can be made for a small fee.
