While at the Crown Lynn Exhibition last week, I was kindly given a copy of an Exhbition Catalogue titled Crown Lynn New Zealand the First 30 Years from September 1983 which was held at the Gisborne Museum & Arts Centre.

This Exhibition is mentioned in the article above from the Gisborne Herald about Olive Hale Ingram.
Olive was honoured with the Queens Service Medal for services to the history of New Zealand Ceramics.

The Exhibition Catalogue lists 374 pieces of Crown Lynn that was collected by Olive Hale under 38 titles.
A few examples:
Art Pottery with early impressed numbers only. Put out before the Crown Lynn name was used; Handpotted by Ernie Shufflebottom, from early 1950's: all matt white;
Animals;
Wall Vases;
Three star and tiki mark in brown.

All pieces have a description of the piece and the colour.
I am very pleased to note that there is no mention of any trickling glazes!
Olive uses the words -drip glaze, mottled glaze or the colour mixture.

The Introduction in the Catalogue mentions that Mrs Hale is writing a book on Crown Lynn for collectors and historians of New Zealand Ceramics and it was expected to be available in the next few months.

So the hunt is on to find out if this book was ever completed or published.

After the Exhibition Olive Hale's collection of 1500 pieces was given to the Crown Lynn company's Museum at New Lynn. Half of this collection went missing when Crown Lynn closed down. The other half is on loan at the Auckland Museum.

Gail Henry's New Zealand Pottery: Commercial and Collectable and Valerie Ringer Monk's Crown Lynn: A New Zealand Icon, both acknowledge Olive Hales for the Exhibition Catalogue from 1983.

Olive's book hasn't been published to date. Olive did visit the opening of the exhibition in Auckland to see her collection one last time. She's currently living in Gisborne and turns 95 this year unfortunately I don't see it being published in the near future

Thanks for your input JP.
Glad that I have a copy of her Exhibition, but sorry that I didn't meet Olive at the Exhibition Opening.
How annoying is it to have an important link to the Gisborne Herald, to wonderful Olive Hale Ingram insights, to now find that it no longer works !!!!!

Thank you indeed Olive. You understood the importance of Crown Lynn before any of us - a true pioneer and a dedicated researcher.

"After retiring in 1982, Olive Hale decided to catalogue her collection and started producing a book on Crown Lynnís Company history. While the project was supported by Crown Lynn and chapters written, the book did not go ahead."
