There are two listings on the Database that could be this pattern ...
House of Representatives - 966 [Govt Stores BD]
House of Reps - 913
Hopefully we will find the answer one day!

This range was made in 1980 and is recorded as "Classic" in the Crown Lynn Stoneware records and cover all of the shapes made in the Aurora patterns.
The House of Reps Pattern number 913 is from 1980 so I will add that number to the photo in the Gallery.
The bowl of Marl's above shows up in the records as:
4805 - "Classic" Cereal - Soup 6 3/4" first made 22.5.80.

House of Representatives Gravy Boat

Post  Ev on Mon 24 Feb - 16:48

This is made of Stoneware clay and rings like a bell when tapped with a fingernail just like Stoneware should.
This was first made on 23.9 80 and the groovy handle is such a give away for that era Smile
I saw some of this ware when I visited the Beehive with Heather when we went to Wellington to see the Crown Lynn Exhibition in 2011. There were a couple of Crown Lynn patterns on display from the past.
This House of Reps ware is hardly ever seen on TradeMe and I feel extremely lucky to get this piece!

House of Reps 3803 Stoneware Ashtray

Post  Ev on Sun 27 Apr - 11:39

So much smaller than I imagined, but so beautifully made.
Made on the Semi-Automatic, whatever that means in 1981.
My heart now belongs to Crown Lynn's Stoneware, as it is the very best ware that they made in my opinion.

A House of Reps 4802 Salad Plate 8 1/4" first made 22.5.80.
I worship this stoneware as it's thin but so strong and feels wonderful to the touch.

8800 Classic Chop Plate 12"



3801 Classic Coffee Cup 1981 or 1808 Classic Coffee Mug 23.9.80
I need help to work out which one this is please!!
This is a small sized cup really as it doesn't seem big enough to be called a mug.  
It's more along the lines of a Demitasse, but a little bigger.
Now I've talked myself into it being the 3801 Coffee Cup Wink



The Coffee Cup and Saucer look great together Very Happy



Making amazingly fast progress with this set, but I'm still looking for -

Dinner Plates,
Cups,
Mugs,
Bowls,
3050 Mug in this clay and pattern
Vegie Bowl and Lid
Gravy Boat Stand
Butter dish
Coffee Pot
Teapot
Cocktail Dishes
Mustard Pot
Rimmed Fruit dishes
Rimmed Cereal dishes
Vegie Bowl
Casserole
Oval Plate 13"
Jug

Please contact me if you find any of these in your travels cheers

Ev... I would agree that's its a 3801- Reason...I just spent ages looking at the museum notes.
Notes say that....3800 and 3801 are different shaped handles, and the leaflet above is from 1981 and features your recent cup, which makes sense (to me it makes sense!)  Razz 
so 'Classic Coffee Mug 23.9.80',must be a bigger version as mugs usually are. maybe with that weird shape handle from "1809 "Classic" Gravy Boat " ??
You are doing well sourcing this range !

Yes, I already have 12 side plates from this unpredictable, hard to contact, strangely odd trader. She seems to have mountains of some of these pieces and talks about listing the whole set once they have all "come in" ...? I am keeping an eye on her listings and will pick up 12 lunch plates tomorrow that I won recently.

I wonder if that is the Wild Wheat jug ?

This is the House of Reps jug ---


Same shape but without the wheat pattern.  It would certainly do until I can source the one with a pattern. It's beautiful stoneware Kat ..... gorgeous!

3803 Stoneware Ashtray with the NZ Coat of Arms

Post  Ev on Mon 20 Mar - 7:51

Yesterday I got another House of Reps ashtray at the Antique Fair.  I have seen this for several years now and yesterday I weakened and paid a princely sum for it, thanks to Swapmeet sales.
Lucky that I did, because while looking for the number I came across new info from the Portage Museum.  I realised that this one doesn't have clips, which are the places to put ciggies and is the Shape 3803 Stoneware Ashtray without clips and the ashtray that I had put into the Shapes Gallery does have these clips.  So another correction, which is great as fine tuning will continue until we get it right.
Bugger me that I can't find a number for the one above that has clips now!!!
I adore the Coat of Arms on this one, but can't imagine wanting to use it for an ashtray and stubbing out butts on it.
