Thought Clue 6 might be tricky, it's a 'make' of porcelain we're after, as opposed to a 'type'.

The time had nothing to do with it. I often find, if doing a cryptic crossword in a newspaper, that I can struggle. But, come back to it a few hours later, and I whizz throught it wondering why the hell I was struggling in the first place!
