Backstamp copy says
Mode, Pat No 125

I have examples of exactly the same design but simply marked 79 the saucer shape
with the CL crown in the centre as shown in the second BS below.

Crown Lynn - Mode Empty Crown Lynn Mode 135 with Maori pattern

Post  KiwiCoastal on Wed 3 Jul - 16:36

I cannot find any information about this anywhere and wonder if anyone knows. I have a Crown Lynn dinner plate marked Crown Lynn Mode pattern 135 with beige band like this plate, BUT it also had five small Maori patterns spaced evenly around the edge of the plate. Anyone know anything about this plate, it is Mode 135 but has this extra Maori pattern, I suspect it would be rare as I cannot find anything about it except one sold on TM in 2012, price now not on auction. Any ideas anyone? Value? Also when was this plate produced approximately if known.

Thanks :-)

Hi, there is no image on this auction any more and I don't have a camera right now. However, this is the auction link http://www.trademe.co.nz/pottery-glass/porcelain-pottery/crown-lynn/plates-platters/auction-436975083.htm

I have a link here to Google images of the same exact plate (dinner sized) . Sorry the link for the image is long.. https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=crown+lynn+mode+135+maori+plate&client=firefox-a&hs=nSb&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=7bHTUYulA6fxiAfgxYCIBA&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=857#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=xRriYQzIu1iR6M%3A%3B2mSWj4iYeW28HM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fimages.trademe.co.nz%252Fphotoserver%252Fgv%252F75%252F183192075.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.trademe.co.nz%252Fantiques-collectables%252Fart-deco-retro%252Fkitchenware%252Fauction-401373751.htm%3B233%3B155

Hi, I noticed some of these plates in an art & object catalogue that I was looking through last night ..... I will find it again and let you know, though if I recall correctly there wasn't a great deal of info.

OK, thanks for the links Smile 

the 2012 one sold for $17

I clicked on the google images photo link you supplied and it took my to an older listing which didn't sell, where the seller suggests it could be an old 'marei' (Marae?) plate, I wonder if there's anything in that theory?: http://www.trademe.co.nz/antiques-collectables/art-deco-retro/kitchenware/auction-401373751.htm

Found the 2011 auction using Google, as it evaded my eyes Rolling Eyes
Lot 269A - 26 plates with olive green band border with tekoteko figures, 6 Large - 20 smaller. Estimate to sell for from $200 - $400 .... so around $10 to $20 each by my reckoning. I would definitely say that these belonged to a Marae.

Wow that is really interesting, thank you so much I really appreciate your help, they sound relatively rare then. I'll have to decide whether to hang on to them and wait it out or sell. Their value will increase with time, as will all Crown Lynn, so perhaps I will just keep them a bit longer. We will see. Thank you Crown Lynn Detective!!!! It's also good to know the name if the Maori pattern is Tekoteko.

Side note: I was in Paeroa yesterday enjoying the antique shops and saw a lot of Crown Lynn there, in particular Arkwrights has lots of patterns, what a joy to spend the morning this way.

On the weekend I saw a set of cups, saucers and BB Plates/dinner plates. The flat ware were stamped "Mode" but the cups had the spot pattern like my attached photo. The cups were what I call "cafe style stacking cups"...
I thought the spotty pattern was Mode, since they were in a set and also being the super vit. type cups....... but I see a plain cup and saucer on this thread that looks like its mode ( all one colour) .. any thoughts .. anyone?
BTW The pot I have is just like the cup but no handle. ( sugar bowl?) Crown Lynn - Mode 02910
This next photo shows the pot compared with "cafe style stacking cups"

I thought that the Mode cups were the same shade as the band around the edge ....?
I've seen the dot pattern, but have never seen a name for it yet.
I have all sorts of that hotelware that stacks and I'm trying to sort out shape number, but there are so many vitrified hotel ware listings I can't quite find them. I am working on it in my little spare time though ........
Yes, I would call that pot a sugar basin.
I have some shape numbers in Mode from the Decoration Advices that I must check out !

The spot pattern is not "mode" thanks for the pictures you sent via PM.
I think that the teal cup could be shape 3620, only from your description you made on another thread. Another adventure but not today LOL

There are three vitrified Hotel Ware cup shapes that were made in that Oyster Colour Glaze that Mode has and I haven't been able to work out which is which yet.

Let me see if I can find photos ....

Heh it would have been quicker to go and take a pic ,....

Ok so these three cups are vitrified hotel ware and I've seen each of these shapes listed as Mode in the Oyster colour........ such tasks we take upon our little souls .... *sighs
