For gallery Flagship Beachcomber plate CL and another

Post  Maryr on Thu 14 Apr - 11:16

I saw one of these for sale and didn't buy it because I thought it was too expensive at $25... never seen another! I am not sure which island this hotel is on.

And this was a thank-you plate to foremen. 1978, looks to be Forma shape.

Woooo HOooooo!!!!
I think it will be the Flagship Beachcomber Hotel in Fiji

http://archives.chicagotribune.com/1972/10/15/page/183/article/fijis-newest-thatched-hotel

We have two entries in the Database for Beachcomber:
Beachcomber 607
Beachcomber Vit 612

That is a splendid design and we have to work out which pattern the plate is.
Janice can you help?????

Post  chris.hall on Sat 24 Sep - 15:25

Hello - I have one of these plates which my father collected in the 80's I think, I would be interested to know its istory and what it was worth, I also have a "with the compliments off crown lynn" ball point pen
holder and was wondering if that was rare or not

Fantastic plate. Known as a service plate they would be on the table when the guests sat down and remove as the first course was served.

I was Export manager at the time and put the deal together. Was a very difficult plate to produce as the purple was quite sensitive to the thickness of glaze being spot on. Also was difficult to get the Nautilus shell centered.

Wish I could find mine

Hi Chris, the NZ market was handled by Don Matthews and Geoff Agnew but its possible I met your father as there was often a social gathering during visits of important buyers.

I don't remember the year the the pen holder was made. It was a thank you gift. Mark Cleverly was well know for type face design and did the design which was produced in house. Think it was a colour from Carousel for the slip glaze rim.

Hi chris.hall and welcome to the site.

The Beachcomber plate is very hard to find so this will make it quite collectable.  The one above and the one from Val Monk's book are the only ones that I've seen, though I don't know how much it would fetch. 
The Ball Point penpot was first made in 1964 and is seen more often so wouldn't be worth a lot at this time.
