I have a really nice little vase and on looking it up (via Google) I came across a series of posts headed '431 Santa mug and 432 toby jug INQUEST'.  I can see from the comments how much confusion there is over dots and numbers and who made what where. Nice to know it isn't just me! I have read about Vic Lawson which helped to a point.

Amongst the posts is a comment by 'Jonno':

'A Crown Lynn .506. is not a vase like mine at all but one of the long trough type pieces that Crown Lynn made. Sorry can't locate a photo but mine is a bit like a miniature bottle kiln with four grooves as the shape reduces to the neck'.

That describes my vase perfectly, as per photos. I couldn't find it anywhere else on the site, so apologies if it is here already.

This little vase is Titian and you can find it in the Titian Gallery as 506.
There has been a lot of discussion about these over the years, but now that we have confirmation from the Crown Lynn records that these were originally Titian when they took them over.
Crown Lynn carried on making some of these vases, but gave them 4 digits.
For example the 508 became 2075 and the 511 the 2074
There are 6 vases that are stamped like your one, from 506 to 511 ... http://www.newzealandpottery.net/gallery/Titian-Gallery/Titian-Gallery-cat_c19.htm

I can confidently say that the your vase was made by Titian Smile

Thanks Ev, I was fairly confident too because of their being three digits (I'm Learning!). Thanks for the eHive link; lots of detailed information.

As Crown Lynn used up to 3 digits until 1964 when they changed to 4 digits, that is where the confusions comes from. Check out the Crown Lynn 500's Gallery to see what I mean - http://www.newzealandpottery.net/gallery/Crown-Lynn-Shapes-Catalogue-01-881/500-to-599/500-to-599-cat_c10.htm
