Another trip to the Museum yesterday ....

Post  Ev on Wed 9 Apr - 15:22

I knew that there were some missing pages from the records that the Museum copied for me, but I didn't realise just how many until I went and checked yesterday.
Vitrified Jugs
Vitrified Basins
Stoneware Basins
and other bits and pieces which I will add descriptions to the Galleries at some stage and this will help with identification even more so.

I also checked out 4 large Scrapbooks that I hadn't seen before and was delighted to find such things as many cuttings about Bernard Leach's visit in 1962 which was partly sponsored by Crown Lynn.  Leach toured the factory and there was also a photo of Leach and Len Castle who he stayed with while in Auckland!
A Warren Tippett article from 1962.... which I haven't had a chance to read yet.
A photo of David Jenkin with one of the Cook & Serve lidded ramekins from May 1962 stating that this was the new range that was being produced to go into the oven.
The Queen's visit in 1963 was kept track of religiously.
A display of Vision and Narvik from 1963.
Consolidated  Brick buys Luke Adams - 14.10.65.
Neptune and Reflections are being promoted as patterned vitrified ware to suit any industry in 1966.
A photo of Mogambo being handpainted in February 1966.
A Casserole like the one in the Autumn Splendour price list from 12.9.66.
And that is just a glimpse of my wonderful day Smile
