I never expected to see one of these in an opshop .....  affraid
But I knew the moment that I saw it that it was a Mark Cleverley masterpiece!!
It's really majestic .... it measures over 33cms!!
Covered with a lovely matt bluey/greeny glaze that reminds me of Ngakura but nicer Very Happy
There is a pic in Val Monk's book on page 122 and she says that these were made at Luke Adams when they were owned by Crown Lynn.  The handle balances to perfection ..... it's so awesomely designed!!
I'm so pleased to have found this piece bounce

Welcome to the site maxine Smile
I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'collections' ....?
Mark Cleverly was a designer at Crown Lynn and won several of their Design Awards before joining the company. One of his designs is called Palm Springs that was part of the Dorothy Thorpe range of dinnerware. Valerie Ringer Monk wrote a book about Crown Lynn called 'Crown Lynn a New Zealand Icon.' there are several references to Mark Cleverly - you will find this at any Library.

Thank you ever so much narna for the photos Very Happy
A difficult colour to capture I know .... the glaze in your main photo looks so blue -
yet the closeups look brown ...
Could you please post the set photo into the Luke Adams for Crown Lynn topic please ...
here is the link ..... my word that is a lovely set!!!!!

Two mugs and a sugar bowl to go with the coffee pot in the first post I love you
These are like new and look like they have never been used. The Lucow glaze is so gorgeous, though it is extremely difficult to capture in a photo.
