A trip to the Museum today went extremely well !! 6th January 2014

Post  Ev on Mon 6 Jan - 19:16

Five years ago I went to the Museum with Heather and recorded a massive amount of Pattern Names and I was stoked.  Today I took photos of all of those patterns, while I was looking for the pattern Vision which I had recorded previously.  I am over the moon as not only did I find Vision which just happens to be this pattern....

from a 1964 pamphlet, but I have a zillion photos to work on and sort out and to identify patterns such as Fernlea, Brierly, Vintage [with roses] Silver Oak Junella, Moselle, Autumn Breeze, Pastrol, Glencairn, etc etc etc.
Lots of juicy info like photos showing Steenstra vases and plant pots from 1962 then again in the 1967/68 folder and even as late as 1969.
I saw Lucow which was described as Aquarmarine on the Cleverly coffee set at Expo I think it was and Basalt on a tankard.  Luckily I don't have to rely on my terrible memory as it's all on digital now Very Happy
Shibui has those cups with the flattened handles in green .... I wasn't aware of that!
I will add more info as I come across it.
Of course I didn't get to see everything that I wanted to in the 6 and a half hours that I was there, so I will have to return once more when I get a chance.
