Crown Lynn Tableware Patterns Database

Post  Ev on Tue 29 Jun - 18:25

I've taken it upon myself to put all of Crown Lynn's Tableware Patterns into a database format.
At this stage it is in alphabetical order.
I'm already considering doing another in numerical order ..... omg!
It's a big job and will take a lot of time, but will be invaluable when it's complete.

Well the d before the number stands for Decoration Number .... silly me I thought it was for Design No Wink

Lots of surprises!!!
Such as many if not all of the numbers have been used more than once!
This shows up dramatically on the numerical data chart.
Also the badged/monogrammed ware can have the same d.numbers as the Decorated Ware ....
Not sure why ..... yet?
I'm finding it all very interesting to say the least Very Happy

Just to let you know how it's going....
I only have about 12 pages left from the museum files to enter now Very Happy
I hit the Earthstone Range a few pages back ...
which makes the last entries from the late 1970's maybe early 1980's ?
I see Pirate Pete and Sally Anne coming up so that should be around the mid 1980's.
Just have to work out when these records began now clown

As the Downtown series are on the first page, it looks like these start from the early 1960's.
Gaylite Studios 637 are also on the first page.
Plus Hand Thrown Vases 280 and further down Matt White 280.
There are endless abbreviations that have to be sorted eg. UG WB Honey.
Lucky my pottery background helps me work out some of these eg. P.W. Vit = Plain White Vitrified.

I've finished loading 93 pages :party:
Just over 1,700 pattern names ...... phew!

Found a date on page 12 ..... 1/11/1968.
Last page is from the around the mid 1980's.

So really that is only about half of the patterns ..... perhaps affraid

Up to 1800 pattern names now .....
So our Tableware Gallery at 177 isn't quite 10% of all the patterns to date Laughing
But at the great rate of knots that it's increasing thanks to mrnarna we should catch up one day Very Happy
I've gathered pattern numbers from our site, tm, ebay and where ever I find them on the net.
This will be ongoing .... ad infinitum Wink
So many pieces of Tableware didn't even get stamped ....
Or were only backstamped with Genuine Ironstone or with one of several Crown Lynn backstamps and no patt number.
I recall reading somewhere that tableware that was going to the seconds shops were not stamped.
It is interesting to note that on the last couple of pages from the Museum,
five digit numbers appeared. These started with a 9.
I have found many 5 digit pattern numbers since then starting with 2,3,4,5,7,8,9.
Another mystery to be solved one day Smile

Thanks for your offer to help kiwijenny and welcome to the site Very Happy
We have a Tableware Patterns Gallery on here from photos put on by our members -

http://www.newzealandpottery.net/gallery/Crown-Lynn-Tableware-Patterns/Crown-Lynn-Tableware-Patterns-cat_c25.htm

If you have any patterns that are not on there - please post them in the Crown Lynn Tableware Topic and I will add them to the Gallery and if they are not in the database I will add them there too Very Happy

Bumps this topic for Marl Smile
The patterns have changed from an avalanche a year ago to just a trickle now ....
but every week I add more patterns to the Database and now we have reached 1927 patterns.
To help Marl understand, I got 93 pages of Crown Lynn pattern information from the Auckland Museum and have entered the names and numbers into alphabetical and numerical databases. I also gather data from any and every source .... opshops, trademe, ebay .... all over.

Very pleased to have reached the 2,000 Patterns milestone. bounce
Of course there are many more patterns to add and heaps to be identified and as we are all learning on this journey, please keep those patterns coming. Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Tableware Patterns Topic, as this has really helped lately :party:
