Several Staffordshire companies manufactured goods under the name ‘Melba’ but 'Melba Ware' was the name of a range produced by H. A. Wain & Sons Ltd, who were well known for their ceramic animals. They began production in 1946 and ceased in the mid-1980s.

Please look at the photographs carefully because these form part of the description.

The item will be very well wrapped in tissue paper and bubble wrap and packed to ensure that it gets to you safely.

Please note that were possible I do try and recycle my packaging. If the piece comes in its original presentation box and/or certificate, I will state this in the description.

Any props in the photograph are not included and dimensions are approximate.

If a video has been added to this listing, then it will give you an idea of the beauty of this piece but please be aware the lights being used on the turntable are coloured and may shine through the piece.

The term ‘vintage’ refers to an item that is more than 20 years old. Estimated age may be given based on the item’s appearance and/or the information I hold on the item’s history.
