A note I sent to the seller (Debbie Crisp) on Wednesday 18th July 2007

Hi, and as you can see from my Feedback, I am a genuine buyer
Now, my Darling Wife loves this set!! - and there lies the problem
Looking at the bank balance, it is just a bit too much at the moment
So would you accept an offer of $520.00 for the set?
Sharon has looked at heaps of breakfast and tennis sets, and this is the one!!
I don't know much about this type of thing, but the auction details and photos look very nice
I take it that it is a 'genuine' set in very, very good condition?
Finally, if you are willing to accept my offer, how much would the postage and full and complete insurance cost to send it up here to Cairns in Queensland, postcode 4879? - and can I pay via PayPal?
I hope you don't mind this note
Regards, Geoff

......and the reply

Hi Geoff
The set is genuine and original!
All of the pieces are in excellent condition!

I am quite happy to take $520.00 for the set and yes, payment using PayPal is fine also
The cost for postage to Cairns, registered with insurance, is $17.20
If you can confirm you would like to buy the set at this price by return email, I’ll alter the listing to the agreed price and you can purchase it immediately
Then I can send you a Paypal invoice and get this packed up this afternoon for you!
Kind regards, Debbie

A follow up note I sent to the seller

Thank You!!
I will now go to the auction page and refresh until the new price is listed and then finalise the sale
My Wife is My Life and I am glad I can get this for her
Thanks again!!

......and the reply

Hi again Geoff
I'll get this packed up this afternoon and hopefully get it to the Post Office before 5.00pm
Thanks so much for your purchase
I'm sure your Wife will love the set!
Kind regards, Debbie

So the price I paid was
plus postage and insurance

A final note I sent to the seller

Can I ask you (another) favour?
I want to surprise Sharon with this, so could you address is to Brett Roneberg at the address below, instead of me
Sharon normally collects the mail each morning from the Post Office, and Brett is our son, and she'll think that the parcel is for him!!
Regards and Thanks, Geoff

......and the reply

Hi Geoff
I’ll take it down to the Post Office this afternoon when I pick my kids up from school
"Brett" should get his parcel tomorrow or Friday, I would think
Bye, Debbie

The Backstamps


  The New Royal Winton backstamp
Notice the circle around the Royal Winton name
The 1995 indicates the year that Grimwades re-established itself as Grimwades Ltd
Some items made between 1995 and 1998 may NOT have the 1995 Year indicator at the bottom of the mark
But ALL have a circle around Royal Winton and say "LTD", with a period, after the Grimwades name
Current "general issue" patterns are Florence, Julia, Majestic, Marion, Old Cottage, Richmond, Royalty, Stratford, Summertime, and Welbeck
The majority of the re-issues were produced in 1997 and later
An early Royal Winton backstamp
  A little later Royal Winton backstamp
The "A" was incorporated after 1943

This looks to be exactly the same as the markings on the various pieces of the Set

In the auction details, the seller says the Set is from 1942 to 1949, and this appears to be 'right'
