M.A.D.E New Zealand potty

Post  Console on Wed 19 Apr - 17:48


I have a potty marked Made in New Zealand. Blue writing in a circle.

Does anyone one recognize this mark?
I am guessing it is 1900's. Could be later if it's Ambrico's but anyone know the shape?

Console,

That stamp looks just like this Ambrico Crown Lynn one, which would give you a date of 1943 to 1950.

The blue colour sounds odd but the "IN" is in exactly the same position.

A photo of the potty would be very helpful.

Thanks everyone. I have to admit I do plan to put this on Trademe as I have several potties but only this one was marked. The joys of cleaning out relatives houses....

I was pretty sure Kat but was wanting other opinions.

It looks like a full-size potty but other full-size I have seen, my own included, have a different, rounder, handle. My small potty has a similar, slightly pointy, handle.

Do we have a possible shape number for this or should it go in the shapes without numbers gallery? cat

It is 91/2 inch diameter. Does this qualify as a "small" potty?

Mine are 19.5 and 23cm OD at the top.
9 1/2 inch approximates the larger of the two so I'd say, no, yours isn't a small one.

See http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t5314-small-straw-coloured-ambrico-potty-chamber-pot#19956

The picture is not showing up for me today but it did a couple days ago.
I should add some more. Done.


(The colour is a bit enhanced because I added contrast to the pic.)
