That's fantastic Tony!!!!
The photo of the painting of the Hobsonville Clark site in the old NZ Ceramics magazine was a similar view... but in colour of course.

R O Clark marked piece

Post  youngone1 on Thu 5 Dec - 17:30

Here's a picture of a piece of R O Clark marked pottery.  I'm unsure what is was used for but I found it at the back of a cupboard blocking a hole in a brick wall. Sharon

Great job Sharon cheers
I can't decide exactly what this is, as it doesn't look like a brick .... scratch

R O Clark 'object'

Post  youngone1 on Fri 27 Dec - 19:00

Hi Ev
It's about 1 1/2 inches thick, is flat on the reverse side and has holes to pick it up in the middle. I'll try and put up a photo of that side also. Could be a lid for a pipe inspection hole or similar I think.
Thanks
Sharon
