Hi Ev I am pleased to see that the Prestons  liqueur bottle now has a number! I sent this pic to Mills Reef winery a while ago and they confirmed that they were from Crown Lynn but I didn't get around to putting them on the site.  I have a couple of these - one with the kiwifruit pattern and the Prestons label, and another plain.  They are well made and rather lovely. Unmarked on the base. The other side has a lovely grape leaf motif.  I don't have access to these bottles at present but from memory they're about 15-18 cm end to end.

There is also an older and less attractive Prestons jar, but the winery was uncertain as to whether CL made them or not. I have seen an unmarked brown one recently on TMe being advertised as a hot water bottle... come to think of it, the brown glaze looked rather similar to the old Toby jug brown, so I will persevere in my investigations. Again, this is about 15-18 cm end to end.

Absolutely brilliant thanks Val !!
I have seen these listed on Trademe, but with no certainty of the maker.
Thanks to the Portage Ceramics Trust for identifying this piece !
I haven't seen the other model before, but hopefully something will turn up regarding it's history.

For gallery 1457 Prestons Kiwifuit Liqueur bottle  Empty Lincoln and (other) Prestons: Parker?

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Mon 7 Dec - 10:01

barcookie on trademe originally posted this Lincoln Wines bottle as Parker Potteries, but it is not marked as such.  The rationale may have been that Parker made the Maori design (Wharetana) bottle for Lincoln. The advertisement has now been rewritten with the bottle as possibly by Crown Lynn.

Note that it is the same shape as the second Prestons bottle in the montage below.
