Floral Jug Stamped Underneath 694 ... Is It Crown Lynn?

Post  Jawg on Tue 19 Jul - 21:15

Sorry I have tried to attach a photo of it several times but I must be doing something wrong as it won't work. Can anybody out there help me with this one by description alone? Does anyone have one of these jugs with the same number? I have never seen another but am wondering if it is a common Crown Lynn piece (if at all Crown Lynn?)
Any info about this would be appreciated. Thanks Smile

Hi Jawg welcome to the site Smile
As we don't have the 694 in our Crown Lynn Shapes Gallery I would be very keen to see a photo.
You could email it to the site on newzealandpottery@gmail.com and I could load it for you if you like.
It would be great to see a photo of the base as well.

Jawg sent these photos to the site to find out more about the pieces.
He is sure that the black 553 vase is Crown Lynn and that is correct, these were first made around 1960.
The 694 jug he feels 95% sure is Crown Lynn but has never seen another.....?
It's a beautiful ornate jug and I've never seen anything like it before .... lets hope that someone comes along with some info about it.







ps Jawg, I think your photos were too large for the software to load - if you could reduce the size to around 600 pix you should have more luck ... Cheers Ev

My thoughts are that the jug isn't Crown Lynn ..... why - do you ask?
Many potteries put numbers on the base of their ware in England and Titian did it too, not only Crown Lynn.
It is beautifully ornate and doesn't compare to anything else that I've seen that is Crown Lynn ....
Even the lovely glaze doesn't jump out at me as a Crown Lynn glaze.
I could be wrong and stand to be corrected, but as nobody else has commented I thought I should.

The 694 jug is English made by Beswick.

Not sure if my eyes are failing me but I can almost see a faint Made in England impressed mark running around the top of the model number.
