Grabbed this at the op shop today, thinking it might be Temuka. Can anyone confirm or deny? I've found pics of this shape but not this glaze.
Could it be Australian?
Nice reddish brown glaze, not very glossy. Also, has a hole in the handle that doesn't go all the way through. What might that be for?

You have found a wonderful Neeco Temuka jug. I have one too, same colour. There are examples on line if you google Neeco jug. They had Neeco stickers and the lid had Neeco on it. Great spotting.

Electric jug. Temuka maybe?  Yes Neeco Temuka Empty Maybe Crown Lynn

Post  JP Thu 29 Feb - 14:11

From the information I have access to, the markings of this jug could be Crown Lynn. Made between 1944 and 1949 they were sold in both NZ and Australia.

These had a variety of heating elements used, from wires directly in the water, to coiled element and finally a stainless steel safety version. Frankly the first couple were likely a death trap!

These were made in a variety of colours, from white across the rainbow and the reference I have is to a dark brown one with a mottled grey-white drip glaze.  

The attached photo's aren't great quality as they are B&W scans of what were relatively poor photos taken in the 80's.

I do, but they're not in great condition as they are a copy. I'm starting to work though trying to make them more "usable" the wealth of knowledge hidden away is extensive.

I'm seeing a number of pieces attributed to Crown Lynn but they don't fit the style or date range in my reference material. They're certainly ugly enough to be attreibuted to Crown Lynn but look more modern than Crown Lynn production. At the same time soem things not attributed to CL are referenced as CL in my material.

A case of finding an appropriate way to pull it all together Very Happy

That's great news JP Very Happy

Would there be any photos from her Exhibition "The First 30 Years" in 1983?
I have a copy of the catalogue and would love to see any photos.

Is her work and research going to be published at any time?
Many thanks, Ev

There are some photos though they are not particulary good. In terms of publishing I'm not sure yet as the job of digitising and arranging what I have is going to be a long process. (Been meaning to get on to it for 10 years so far) Then there is the question of what format and medium to give it justice and also have it as a usable resource for collectors.

Some big questions that still need answers.
