Was just looking through the Decoration Advices from the Museum and noticed ....

Design Line 05001 UG W B Honey
Design Line 05002 UG W B Tan

I guess that one of those entries is this pattern?
This gives me more of an idea for what those letters mean ....
Under Glaze W? Band Honey?
Thought the W would stand for Wide .... but these Bands are skinny Neutral

Saucer

I have a Design Line saucer. I wondered what set it came from. However I am no more enlightened! Mine is a lighter colour (I think) than yours.(the one in the gallery).

Glenys sent a photo of her Design Line saucer, which looks like it takes a coffee can shaped cup.

Maybe this mug could have fitted the saucer?

Looks appropriate!
So now we have two colours of Design Line. Which one is honey and which is tan?

I may the answer to this, I have some saucers that have Design line on them, but it has bugged me for a while that they were not only different colours but the inner banding was also different. I also happen to have a cloister side plate and has just realised that the darker inner banding on the lighter coloured saucer matches the banding on the cloister plate. The inner banding on the darker more burnt looking plates is jagged where are the other is darker and sharper. Hope this all makes sense. Photos to come.

Photos that bopmum sent to the site for clarification -



I think the middle top belongs to Cloister and the left one is design line ....

Oh honey! Sweet honey! Design Line 05001 UG W B Honey
Here's the cup with the saucer! I had them both all the time!
And I agree that they go perfectly with cloister but that's Avondale Selection!!!
This pic is a better colour representation than my one above too.

Is Design Line Crown Lynn then?

Post  KiwiCoastal on Mon 21 Jul - 11:31

I see this Design Line thread is under Crown Lynn. Is it Crown Lynn? Or is it something else? Does anyone know more? I have some light honey coloured cups, saucers and bread plates with the Design Line marking and would like to find out more about what they are and who made them. They look 1970s to me, or late 60s...

Hi there, yes Design Line is definitely made by Crown Lynn. Val Monk's Collectors Handbook page 43 says that this ware was made c.1970's.

Design Line IS Crown Lynn

Post  KiwiCoastal on Mon 21 Jul - 12:09

Thank you so much for that Ev. You're so helpful! That solves the mystery! The "bread plates" are a slightly more golden colour than the honey of the cups and are backstamped "Made in New Zealand. The whole thing came together so I presume a set.

Pictures of Crown Lynn Design Line cup and saucer

Post  KiwiCoastal on Mon 21 Jul - 13:43

I was having troubles uploading images, so hope you don't mind I posted on your facebook and now I can (hopefully) use those image URLS here on this forum
1) Design Line Cup and saucer see https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=671058809636666&set=o.336985416421646&type=1&theater

2) Design Line saucer back stamp see https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=671059899636557&set=o.336985416421646&type=1&theater

(cup has same exact back stamp)

Is it OK to post images on your facebook and cross refer like this as I have about a dozen Petra images to upload and would have to use the same method, is this OK? It would be better if they show right here on the page without clicking, but I cant seem to insert an image.
