Caribbean Ware Colours and info

Post  Ev on Wed 4 Nov - 8:01

I can't find a lot of info regarding Caribbean Ware other than they used the 781 'Tulip' cups and that there were four colours:
Olive Green, Pink, Teal and Yellow

Olive Green:

Caribbean Ware Blue-Green and I'm not sure if this is the same as Kat's Teal as it appears to be a lot darker?  Cameras are very fickle when it comes to blues and greens!
I'm adding my photos in the thumbnail format to save time .....

Is there a sort of grey colour listed in the Caribbean Ware range? Or do you know where more information could be found on the colour range?

Hi, there isn't a lot of information around, so we are trying to come up with our own.  Showing which colours has the Caribbean stamp is a good start.  Do you have a stamped grey that we could add to the mix?  
There is a Caribbean cup listed on Trade Me atm in a lime green, but not the tulip shape, the older shape which I find interesting. Shape 754 they say ...

Hi Ev,

Thanks for the reply, it is all very interesting. I am so enjoying reading the old posts on this forum. When it arrives i will add a photo here as it is hard to tell from the photo i have seen the exact colour. It seems similar to a light grey but not quite. Will work out how to add a photo in a day or two Smile The green cup is a lovely shape i'm sure someone will enjoy it!

Now that you can see it in the light of day, what colour would you call this Carmensanddeigo? It looks like Mushroon from here, but digital cameras can play tricks on our eyes.

I think that would be right Ev it looks a sort of light mushroom colour and a bit like quite a warm shade of grey in some light.

I would like to compare the colour to the grey and dark grey that we have in the other colour glaze topics, as there is no record as to which grey this Caribbean one is.



Golly I still see Mushroom! I will look for more Caribbean info when I get a chance!

I found a rimmed Caribbean side plate today and I haven't found any info about this shape in the Caribbean range. Lemon is the colour and I will post it when I get a moment.

Well this wide rimmed lemon side plate looks like an old shape to me.  The base is stamped Caribbean Ware British, so now I want to know if this is another blinking pattern with it's different shape and the word British.  Gahhhhhh sometimes I think all of these puzzles will do my head in !!  Anyway take a look, but I don't know where to put the darn thing!





The base which is quite different:

Caribbean Ware 754 in lime green

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Fri 20 May - 15:34

Ido, aka Moksha, sent me this lime green Caribbean Ware 754 as there was room left over in a box of goodies I just bought from him.



The cup on the left is an early (48-55) 754: see how they grew!

Tom Clark Jnr commented on Facebook that the Pink colour was darker when the glaze was put on thicker, or lighter when put on thinner, so I've just gone with one pink in the Montage now.

kayabraham is letting us use her Maroon Caribbean Ware British for the Montage which is in the older shape like the lemon one above and is most likely from the 1959/60 time frame. It just made me consider that the newer Coupe Caribbean Lemon might be the Caribbean Lemon d335!!
