Ev - This is what I think is this Rusticana....  You said we were missing it from the gallery. Or is it a different glaze

Rusticana from a 1972 advert in Oz and it looks like the Forma shape ..

http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1301&dat=19721126&id=jSVZAAAAIBAJ&sjid=s-UDAAAAIBAJ&pg=5167,10736635

I will have to check it out, but if I remember correctly Hudson & Halls cooking show used Rusticanna/Rusticana and I'm not even sure of the spelling as it seems to change!

I would say that it's a plain brown, but which one? It should have the pattern name on the back of something, unless it's too dark to show up.

Rusticana is on the 3038 cups in the Patterns Book for Harmony Buff d266 and it looks like a very dark brown. Check it out Janice.

I did see that.. this cup looked dark but when the light got onto it it looked different again! -- I will have a look tomorrow at the coffee cans & forma cups that I have to see if I have any darker ones

Thanks for that link Finn.
It appears that the Dark Brown Apollo is Rusticanna.
I can't work out what the Kontiki refers to.
Any ideas Janice?

The Database has Rusticana d692 and Rusticana Vitrified d705
