Kon Tiki d244 10610Kon Tiki d244 Cariss12Kon Tiki d244 Kontik11.Kon Tiki d244 Cariss13[/[url=https://servimg.com/view/16143437/416]Kon Tiki d244 Cariss16url]This is a tricky one! The top plate you have in the gallery as KonTiki d244. My 1st 2 photso are of the identical plate with the backstamp Carissima d584. The middle photo is actually KonTiki d 244 but unfortunately I don't have a pic of the backstamp. The bottom 2 are of the actual Carissima! Some one was making free withthe wrong backstamps methinks!! Hope you can understand all tis Ev, cheers Marl.

I saw a Kon Tiki d244 listed on Trademe recently that was the same pattern as your second photo and thought Uh Oh ...... so I'm sort of on track Wink

It is a bit confusing, but I am sure the brown plate is the real Kon Tiki I have had it several times and seen the backstamp and also seen it listed with the 244 number. Cheers, did you see my post of Sylvia Blossom Time?

I think I have it sorted now Very Happy
I just have to replace the Kon Tiki in the Gallery with the real deal.
I bet those mismatched backstamps and patterns ended up in the Seconds shops!!
Yes I saw the beautiful Sylvia Blossom Time and will shortly load it into the Gallery Cool

p.s..... do you know the real name of the first pattern??????

How about these? (as someone has posted in TM forum)

http://images.trademe.co.nz/photoserver/95/231813295_full.jpg

Pattern appears to be kon tiki - but colour seems much darker overall than the ones in the photos here. Am wondering about the backstamp on these as the poster was saying they were 'part of the forma range'

Oh how dark is dark?
Yes it does look like the real Kon Tiki d244 pattern, but greatly overfired so much that the pattern has darkened to oblivion!
If there is a backstamp it would surely be impossible to read as the colour is so dark ....? I hope it doesn't say Forma on the back anywhere....

Ahah, original poster has been back and it was just a slip - writing 'Forma' instead of 'Apollo'. So you think it is a 'second' rather than an intentional colour variation then?
