Neptune pat no 769 for the gallery Dsc05810
I went back to the antique shop yesterday, it's amazing what you can find if you look around again, I love this pattern ~ it's unusual, it doesn't immediately shout Crown Lynn, but there you are! sunny
Neptune pat no 769 for the gallery Dsc05811
and the backstamp, I don't know if I've seen a pattern number on a super vitrified plate before Suspect
perhaps I need to look in the gallery again sunny

I've seen this intriguing pattern on Trademe many times, always listed as Neptune, but I've never ever seen a number for it before...... brilliant work mumof1 ... Bravo!

Bless my mum. She's just manage to find me a set in this pattern (minus cups). Hopefully will have this in my possession by the weekend. Very excited as I've always been a fan of the fish themselves...deep water fishies on a plate? Awesome.

Will take photos as soon as I have them. Looking forward to seeing them in person.

I know, how cool are they?! My mum is a champ. Cool

Really strange shapes in the set: pin dishes, 2 different saucer shapes (a rounder saucer you'd match with tulip cups and a flatter saucer), B & B plates, 2 different sized coupes (14cm & 18.5cm) and small dinner plates (21.5cm). I'd love to see what the 2 shapes of cups (I'm assuming, 2 saucer shapes, 2 cup shapes)

What's also strange is not one piece says 'Neptune' but there seems to be a star or a number that represents the fish pattern (as opposed to the shape) beneath the coronet. Haven't actually found a pattern in the numbers and stars, just seems like jibberish to me.

Unfortunately, 4 pieces are chipped. :/ Luckily, they're doubles. HOORAH!

I will do some Neptune cup research later and see what turns up .... I've seen them listed over the years!
Please try to get hold of a camera with a macro option to take photos of the jibberish so that we can see if it means anything Wink Your Mum deserves a medal cheers

Right, so I googled 'macro' and the make of my camera and of course I have this function. Just never knew it was there...terrible I know.

got the back stamps and it seems only the B & B plates have the Neptune stamp. The rest seems random throughout the set...

Bravo Well Done DaSiEm sunny
Vitrified ware was made for the hospitality industy and also hospitals etc.
The ware was made using clay that fires higher than the average tableware and this makes it very strong and long lasting.
That jibberish word with the one star backstamp looks like a blurry 'vitrified' from here.
The one star backstamp was used from 1955 according to Val Monk .... a bigger later version was used in the 1960's.

Actually, my confusion is what the numbers and stars represent. They are really random and didn't seem to represent a plate shape or a specific design.

Does anyone know what they mean?

Those numbers seem to only appear on vitrified and supervitrified ware.
I've never seen any reference regarding those numbers ...
but they must have something to do with vitrified ware I guess ....

There was lots of interest but the finishing time was a black hole. It was during the South Africa vs Samoa game on the North Shore...and I was there! I hadn't completely worked out I had them finishing during the game...:/

All good though, I was really lucky to get the set through my mum and they'll love the plates, chips and all.

I am quite fascinated by the Neptune series, definitely one of my 'keepers'. Now, to track down the cups...

Hi you said you were looking for some oval neptune plates? I have some for sale on Trade Me... but they are not the same number - 765 not 769? Same pics of the fish though.

Thanks so much for the photo watergirl as I can tell you that the 765 is the shape of the plate ... not sure about the /10V after it though. Cheers Ev

I meet a serious neptune collector yesterday and she has a cup to this set. I have just emailed her and asked her pretty please for a photo. Anyway the description of the cup is its Black with a white inside and the fish are also on the inside. Can't wait to see a photo.

O...M...G...I would just squeal if I could get my hands on a cup! I'm in serious need of oval plates and cups in Neptune but not ready to commit an arm or a leg for it.

My absolute favourite pattern...

Oh forgot to say she said she had a huge Neptune collection, but had only ever found ONE cup, they must as rare as hens teeth. Can't wait to hear back from her to see if she'll give us a photo of her cup.
