This teapot is in a Ceramco booklet photo at the Museum and it's part of the new Hyatt Hotel Rotorua tableware suppled by Gibsons and Paterson in 1984.

I found two saucers with d735 on them today in the same colours as the teapot.
Nothing about Bristile, just Gibpat Crown Lynn New Zealand.  Photos to come when possible.
I will need help to work out a number, as I can't see where it goes in the Bristile Gallery at a glance.

I can only find the backstamp engraving on the Portage site for d735 -

Here are the photos of the d735 saucer and none of the vitrified cups that I have fit this saucer, so it must the cup must be unique to this range.  I will have to try and find a number for this at the Portage Museum.

Lot's of records for Bristile shapes have turned up with the searching done this week.
Many of these records show the shape and the shape number and then have in brackets a Bristile Code.
For example the 7640 Teapot above has [Bristile Code 561pt] and the
7642 Coffee Pot [Bristile Code 411pt] and it is a copy of the one on the Bristile link.

I'm beginning to wonder if they copied the Bristile shapes in 1983.

Getting back to the saucer above,
there is a 7610 Saucer Bristile in the records and it is 149mm
My one above is 150mm across and not having a cup doesn't help sort it out.
