Cobblestone glaze....

Post  Ev on Tue 9 Sep - 20:25

I prefer the dinnerware glazed in the cobblestone glaze because -
it's so smooth and shiney and feels friendly and smooth to the touch.
I can't think of the most popular glaze name..... warm browny tones -
that has rutile in it that gives it it's distinctive look -
but it 'crunches' when eaten off and feels rough to the touch. *shudders*

Unmarked possible Temuka piece

Post  TonyK on Wed 10 Sep - 16:15

This bowl is very similar to an unmarked one in Gail Henry's second book on page 73:


The only marking is a "9" which looks hand inscribed:

Tony - your bowl looks exactly like the one in Gails book - even has the 'chip' under the rim... if it is a chip it is not just like it - it is it! Shocked

It's definitely under the glaze and very smooth so probably moulded for some reason.

I looked again at the "9" and there's an indentation next to it which at a stretch could be a ". Perhaps it's "9 "" for nine inches which equates to the 22cm measurement Gail Henry gives.

I bought a Riverstone Dinner Set in the 1970s... recently I have replenished the set and now it is in full use again.

John's Temuka fuse

Post  Ev on Thu 2 Apr - 14:55



Was given it a long time ago. Think they were made by Temuka Insulators 1931-1941. Has 230V tiki and 10A on the front with TEM and NZ on the sides of the tiki. On the base part it has NZI TEMUKA. They were in all the old fuse boxes.

That would be the Riverstone which I have a rather large collection of.
