Who made my 553 Vase ?? NOT CROWN LYNN ??

Post  mumof1 on Thu 9 Aug - 16:53


this is my Roydon 553

and the flat base with .553.

This is my other 553

with indented, or pedestal base and large 553 and no other markings

and the two together. The Roydon is on the left. Who would have made it??

Perhaps a different mould maker at Crown Lynn at some time?
That's all that I can come up with ....

The vase itself is the same size, it's the base that is different. I was wondering if this was a trial when CL bought Titian, as most of their vases have this type of base, not flat.

Hmmm, but when Titian were making Crown Lynn shapes, they had four digits by then, not three!

Gail Henry mentions that workers jumped companies, eg mould maker Vic Lawson.

That makes sense, and there is another on TM with an indented base too http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=500475089

On page 230 Gails book CL had a Roydon tiny tots ware made for Mckenzies mid 1960s maybe Roydon was the Mckenzie brand name.

Somewhere in Val Monk's book it says that the name Roydon came about from the two McKenzie brothers names .... Roy and Don.
I would imagine that anything with that brand name was sold at McKenzies.... wouldn't you signal red?
