Castware 1168 Maze Mug

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Sat 26 Jul - 16:09

(Maze mug photo to replace Anne's "sketch" in the gallery.
It's the very same mug. I just haven't got around to posting until now.)

1168 Maze Mug 13.4.73
88mm H x 83 OD top x 78 OD base
base marked "1168." and "Made in New Zealand" all raised.

Curious that this one, so far down the numbering has a number with a dot.
Now that I look I see, some, but not all, of my mugs with numbers before this (Titian factory of course) have the dot too. This MAY indicate the first lot of moulds used?? ie the dot was dropped from later moulds. To get a better idea of this I'd have to check over my duplicates to see whether some with same number have dots and others do not. Another time.

I seem to recall reading about one of the modellers or mould makers talking about the dots but can't remember where.

I also see that this is from the period (1970-1973) when some castware mugs were made at Luke Adams and others at Titian. The last "first date" for an Adams coffee mug (1191 - Elf-eared Handle Coffee Mug) is also 1973 (interpolated from the dating of the 1192 - Fork Scraped Soup Cup Luke Adams, estimated to be late-1973).

This mug has the same pattern as my vase 2095 (which also has a dot after the number for reasons unknown).

Surprise surprise: it's a "Maze Vase"!

Date is four days after the mug.

Later...
I just had a closer look and saw that it is not just the size that is different:
the individual boxes are formed from "U" or "C" shapes in the mug and "L" shapes in the vase.
