Some lovely photos of Elizabeth Lissaman's work courtesy of manos-samos


and her backstamp with her dating code that converted her name Elizabeth to numbers -
[E=1 l=2 i=3 z=4 a=5 b=6 e=7 t=8 h=9]
which means this piece with the code Ehea was made in 1975




and the backstamp with the code Ehet showing it was made in 1978

At last... a bird plate came my way!

Post  Maryr on Tue 25 Jul - 14:07

So happy. We stopped at Otorahanga, for an opshop that is only open Saturdays, and this plate was waiting for me. 27 cm across, it has a couple of wee nibbles in the rim which have been covered with black felt tip.  I was so nervous getting this home; it got packed in a blanket in a box under pillows at the back of our bus! According to the dating system in this post, my platter/bowl was made in 1973. Wonderful.
