1299 Shamrock Emblem Irish Coffee Mug

1299 Shamrock Emblem Irish Coffee Mug

Post  Ev on Fri 8 Nov - 7:38

These were first made in March 1979.
I've often seen these mugs on my travels, but have never seen a name or number on them. Val Monk had one with her when we visited Cam and Bev Brown and asked if they knew who made them. They had no ideas. I came across an entry in the Crown Lynn records that is the title of this thread and realised that they must be Crown Lynn. Next thing you know I found one and swooped it up. It has a very dark green glaze that looks almost black in this photograph.

I saw some at Val's when I visited and added one, albeit slightly chipped at base.
(Although my wife Nicole is 100% Irish stock she had no interest in it!)

There were three at Avondale fleamarket when I was there 2 weeks ago,
but I totally had my hands full so could not carry anything more.
They would have completed a set for Val, so I will keep an eye out when I return Sunday.

Ev, could you please add a photo of the base.
I know it's not marked with words or numbers but I think the shape of the base,
45 degree or so sloping up to a flat bottom, matches other items seen around the op-shops,
perhaps indicating that the maker, presumably Crown Lynn,
produced a few more unmarked items at the time.

The shape reminds me of the Parthenon 1314 mug

and there's a white one too

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Tue 7 Jan - 12:08

(Ev, I think that should be 1312 for Parthenon)

I found another today at the Sallies.
Glaze is brown over the letters and shamrock but almost black on the body.
It has an unusual texture that I haven't seen on other four digit mugs.

a different pair

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 15 Mar - 22:37

These two on trademe are a different shape, shorter, squatter, and ALL the writing is underneath the shamrock.
