The Richard Quinn Collection

Post  mrnarna on Fri 18 Nov - 19:43

THE RICHARD QUINN COLLECTION
The collection details an assortment of early objects from the late 1930s that point to
the humble origins of the company when It was trading as Ambrico. Items such as the
handle-less cup, the cup With a block handle and the tawny coloured Paris Ware, which
was the first set of dinner ware produced by Ambrico In c.1943 and traces the amateur
beginnings of the company. With the outbreak of war, the New Zealand government
could no longer source an adequate supply of British-manufactured crockery and Crown
Lynn managed to secure the lucrative bid to supply the much-needed tableware to the
armed forces, New Zealand Railways and hospitals around the country. The contract With
the railways resulted In the company producing over 30,000 durable, vitrified cups,
saucers and plates each year.

thank you for that news. we will certainly be there before January. Must have missed those dates. Yes I am selling the yellow checked set to concentrate on one colour...RED. It has been great to have but it is a waste just sitting there and I cannot display it either. Thanks for the tip. Smile

This awesome Exhibition finishes on Saturday 14th January with a floor talk from the Portage Ceramics Trust staff about their plans to establish a museum for the Richard Quinn Collection. Please go and report back all of the details for those of us that won't be there.

Went to the Gus Fisher today and really enjoyed the address and chatting after to several people. I made notes and will get them sorted tomorrow and post with an odd photo that could be of interest.
There were about 32=33 people sitting listening plus others in the gallery viewing.
Well worth the second visit for me.
