At last a tell tale sign that tells me that these low 500's numbered like Crown Lynn are really Titian!
Crown Lynn never used that 'crackle glaze' as far as I know, but Titian used it on many items.
I hope that answers you question sunshine sunny

Ah!! now it is all revealed , I have a very similar vase but with less flair out at the top.
and marked .506. with same 'hand' as the one on Trademe.
I bought as Crown Lynn but have long been of the opinion that it is not, as quite different to the CL shape listed on the Forum. the 4 rings are quite distinctive. The writing of the numbers on CL pieces and this pot are different also particularly the size of the digits very large on these two quite small pots also the way the dots are drawn. My 506 also has the 'crackle glaze' which on first site looks like crazing but is more pronounced and is 'larger'.

ps It seems the gremlin that was stopping me posting photos has gone hurrah Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Don't know what this ended up selling for .... but I couldn't understand the bidding that went on for this little vase! Last time I noticed it was up to $31+ !! Even with your comments sunshine! I've seen this same vase selling for a couple of dollars in opshops and have had a good look at it and put it back Wink

Gail Henry mentions that one must be careful if there is no makers stamp on pieces and only numbers with dots, as Vic Lawson who introduced the numbering system with dots either side at Crown Lynn, also worked for Titian Studios where he also practised this same method.

It ended up selling for $40.50, amazing isn't it. I hope the buyer read the measurements correctly and isn't disappointed when they get it. I tried to make buyers aware, but that is all one can do. sunny
