Post  Banker Mon 5 Mar - 17:59

Hi all, is there any where that has a guide to the types of items that were produced under various colours? I am aware of what colours are rarer than others etc and collect all sorts (my avatar shows just a tiny selection of my favs) but interested to know if things like little jugs, egg cups etc were produced in all colours or just the standard colours? EG in the pink I have egg cups, plates, saucers, tulips and a mini cup and saucer. Would love to know if there was anything else produced. Sadly the one thing that eludes me is a side plate although I know they exist!

Sugar bowls, salt and peppers, gravy jugs and saucers, animal eggcups, many different sized jugs ..... there must be more as well ....
Alison Reid had her Colour Glaze collection on display at the Crown Lynn Exhibition and I was amazed at all of the different items.

What are the standard Colour Glaze Colours Banker?

I wish I had have seen that exhibition! It isn't still on is it?

Sorry, by standard I meant the common stuff... mustard, green, blue, teal, brown, lemon, lime, etc. I often see all sorts of things in those colours. I was really just wondering if they produced the full range in all colours.

I am not a collector of egg cups.

Found a note that I'd made from the Crown Lynn records at the Museum. It was from an advert for Capri Colour Glaze in 1967 stating the range of colours -
Yellow, Olive Green, Caramel, Maroon, Lilac, Mushroom, Brown, Black, Pink, Blue and Teal. This was part of the Replacement Range where you could buy a piece at a time.
There is a long list of all of the colours that I've come across in the Colour Glaze thread.

I have a list of all of the colours somewhere (there are a lot!) - it wasn't the colours I was trying to figure out - it was whether they produced the full set of dinner ware and accessory ware in every colour or whether some colours only had some items (there are such a lot of different shaped plates, bowls, jugs, egg cups, toothpick holders, gravy boats, etc - a lot of which I have over and over again in certain colours but not others. Shame about missing the exhibition. Thankfully there are some good articles about it to be found on the internet. Smile

Arrraggghhhh the numbers always get me! Most of the Colorglaze stuff I collect has either Colourglaze on the bottom or Royden South Pacific, Capri or New Zealand (everything in my pic, for example, has Colourglaze and New Zealand) - the odd piece has Caribbean ware.

I have noticed that some numbered stuff is a completely different colour/series too when compared with those with the markings only above. So need to take care with colours off the internet!

Thanks! I love a good challenge myself. This is an excellent forum. Smile

We cross posted ......
I would say that all shapes would have been made in those standard 12 colours.
The list of colours doesn't clearly show the shades of each colour e.g.
Soft pink, pink and dark pink .... there could be more as well!
There are a couple of pinks in the Tableware Gallery under Colour Glaze.
Have you found a variation with the colour pink?
Crown Lynn didn't seem to make just one colour in their sets .... they advertised them in all of the colours, so you could pick and choose.
Oh I see you have posted again Very Happy

Pink has been pretty standard for me across the markings mentioned above. It tends to be quite different with some of the numbered stuff - probably due to it being later (and often is a different shape anyway) so I stick to 50s and 60s. Although having said that, some Royden pieces seem slightly lighter which is probably an age thing. I have seen some pink Forma on trademe recently which I have never collected but the pink colour looks the same so I might just start! Very Happy

I have a mini tulip cup and saucer in pink (Capri) and have just purchased another which has a different cup shape entirely (marked Roydon) which is quite interesting as I have never seen either before (although I have seen the demitasse cups - I think that is the right spelling - in Tango Hotel Ware etc which are a different shape again. The colour is exact.

I want to add that Colour Glaze is THE most popular pattern on Trade Me.
Bidding wars are common and this keeps the prices up as well.
Crown Lynn collectors don't like parting with any of their treasures!
It was only a few years ago that you could find all sorts of Colour Glaze in Opshops, but now it is rarely seen, due to Trade Me traders is my guess ....?

Don't I know it! I was quite fortunate to use the buy now on a plates set that had two pink ones and then the trader offered me two more larger ones in pink as well so that was great (and well worth an hour trip to get them home safely) as they don't come up too often. I definitely find more items the good old fashioned way of fossicking for them rather than on Trademe.

I like to use everything I have although I make sure I have one of each thing in the china cabinet untouched.

I noticed that the Forma Colour Glaze names were called 'New Colours' and were given new names and numbers, which I noted with great interest. Amazing that they kept on coming up with new colours throughout!
Also, other patterns had cups and accessories that matched in Colour Glaze colours
e.g. Clematis had Oyster Colour Glaze accessories.

True! I love mix and match! I find the Fiesta pattern goes great with pink - it has the grey criss cross pattern with coloured spots all over it. I have seen a photo of someone's big collection of that which is harder and harder to find now in excellent condition. I personally don't collect it but I am partial to the saucers.

Just saw an advert for Crown Lynn on Facebook from a 1963 Womans Weekly.
It had New York dinner plates matched up with three different lots of colour glaze cups, saucers, salt & pepper and large jug .... in yellow, green and pink.
They went really well with New York as it has those three colours dotted here and there.
Not sure if this will work, but here is the link -

Thanks! Was pleased to see I could access this link (even as a non face book user).

I finally managed to find a salt shaker to match my pepper in pink (tall as per your pic) Smile . My pepper has a small hairline but the set still look very attractive and I have never seen another. I have a perfect pepper in plum too but have never seen a salt.

Yes, I don't know what possessed me because I already have one! I think I just got caught up in the excitement of it all and not that bothered to not get it (my one that size has a tiny bite but I got it for $10 LOL). I do love my pink collection. Very Happy Yay for the seller.

If only I could find a perfect pepper!

EDITED TO ADD: Looks like I dodged a bullet there is the feedback on both parties is anything to go by. Plum jug! Not pink. Now that I know that, it so looks plum too!

I have bought a few things on TM lately and have been prepared to bid a bit higher (jug excluded!) as I have found the majority of my collection very, very cheaply. It is such a fun thing to collect.

I think people saw that jug take off... there are quire a few coloured jugs listed on TM now!

I would really love to know what other bits people have found. I have various things but am always interested to know what else I could be searching for. Very Happy

Gorgeous! I love the weeny hotel jugs and have quite a few now. Black, blue, lime, teal, salmon, green, a pink (!) and plum in some various sizes (I love the 4.5cm ones and 5.5cm ones although my salmon one is 7.5cm). I am not a fan of black personally, although I have some colourglaze duos (all stamped). I imagine putting those on TM would keep me in pink jugs for a while! Very Happy

EDITED TO ADD: LOVE LOVE LOVE your wee yellow one (with the white interior) Very Happy . I am quite partial to that colour and it goes great with pink. EDITED TO ADD that I finally found my own wee 5.5cm yellow. Finally!

I am still surprised with what can be found in bulk lots and second hand shop runs. I tend to find most things outside of Auckland though (everyone is too wise here!).

The one really obvious thing I have yet to find in pink is a pin dish! I have bid on a couple that were in bulk lots with other pin dishes, but haven't bid too high as I only want the pink one.

I have noticed that TM seems to go in spurts. I never used to bother bidding on stuff on there but it is fun now.

I saw the plum jug, salt and pepper and another smaller plum jug from this picture in the weekend. A person I know was lucky enough to purchase them. I am still a pink fan but they looked very cool and I hadn't seen them before.
