Ooooo Kat these pots intrigue me with their stunning blues/purples amazing glazes.
People list these on Trade Me as Crown Lynn experimental Specials Ruskin glazes. But I'm not sure who made them. I am recording all of the different shapes and numbers in the hopes that one day the penny will drop .. .. .. Lucky Kat cat

I have also wondered what this little pot is. Similar mark 138 in center with something around the base. Very CL looking type glaze and some age to it?? I have seen that lettering on early Teal I think.

Saw one of these vases at Restore East Tamaki today and photographed it.
The weight felt right for Crown Lynn, but the hand written number wasn't like any that the Ambrico Specials did.  I see two of these sold the other day for $200

and please take Nick with a grain of salt, though I do love his listings Wink

The glaze is exquisite, the clay is odd and dark from what I could see and I don't think they are Ambrico, Ruskin, Specials, or Crown Lynn.  There seem to be quite a few around as they pop up on Trade Me on a regular basis.  We just need to find out who made them !!  I didn't buy this one as it was too expensive for an unknown maker!



Number 98 or 86 ???
