The "Christopher Robin Nursery Set"

Ashtead Potters made a series of 24 pieces for the Christopher Robin Nursery set. These show scenes from AA Milne's children's books with illustrations by EH Sheppard. Because of the connection with "Winnie the Pooh" the pieces from this set are now highly sought after. The original hand painted set was presented to the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George V1)on a tour of the factory in 1928, with a second set being given to the original "Christopher Robin", Christopher Robin Milne.
