Orzel tea cannister

Post  Ev on Thu 9 Jan - 20:35

Another speckled glaze product.  There was no way that I wanted to buy this piece so I happily just took it's photo.  It has a footring, but there are no markings on the base.  The shape and style are not to my liking, but it would have served it's purpose and you can tell from the cork that it has had a lot of use.



Just noticed teaandcoffee is on the site and want to add that this glaze is made using West Auckland black beach sand to make the speckle.

Ev, you forced my hand! I was trying to avoid these.
Not actually ugly just no charm.
I did need a container for peppercorns though.

"Peppercorns" 10.5cm H to lip x 7 OD base
flat base (so no marks), typical rough Orzel fettling

(thank you to SPCA Whangarei for permission to photograph)

The glaze is definitely yellowed, rather than the whitish glaze or the tea canister.

Hehe those look rather small .. I will measure the canister later. Glaze doesn't go yellow foes it? It could be a different glaze.

I don't think so, unless it's a varnish!
(I guess I meant yellow-Y, rather than yellow-ED)
There appears to be a wide variation in the colour of the speckle glaze.
The tankard I just posted is different again.

The spices are definitely from the same series though, huh?
I have looked at them a number of times aware that they would be Orzel,
but was not tempted to buy. Just one doesn't hurt!
