 Re: Shorter Fish Service
Shorter introduced Fish ware in 1928 and continued production of this popular range until they linked with Crown Devon in 1964. I believe Crown Devon purchased the Shorter moulds.

The original dinner service comprised of a serving plate and six medium size plates in a matt glaze. Additions were made to the range into the 1950s. Fish ware was produced in a variety of glazes and colour combinations.
