Pattern Identification - Need help identifying your pattern

Often the name of the manufacture and/or pattern of dinnerware is not obvious. This is particularly common when trying to match patterns of older china. Fortunately, we have  resources available to help assist us in pattern identification. We recommend you click on the pattern photo on the web to see the detail of the pattern we are representing to avoid any confusion on the pattern identification. Patterns listed that we do not know the pattern name will be listed with an abbreviation of the potter's name and a number. Sometimes this will be the actual pattern number and sometimes the "common name" used by dealers.

If you are near Glasgow, Ky bring in a piece. E Mail Robbins Nest for an appointment. Please make an appointment before coming.   We will try to identify the pattern for you.  If you are out of the area, send us a photo or other image of the piece.  If you send a piece of the china, please send a damaged unreturnable piece.
Here are some tips that will help us to research your pattern--
