Felt like I'd just won Lotto when I found these oldie but goodies this week!
This is one of the oldest pieces that I've ever found, as the clay is a putty colour and it has the old Crown Lynn in script from approx 1948 - 1955 in the 2 red lines pattern.
Very fine crazing all over, but it looks better than I do Wink

This plate with 1 orange line feels like it will live for hundreds of years. Supervitrified and as good as when it first came out of the kiln! The small backstamp suggests that it was made from 1955 - ? Don't have that on the Patterns Database either!

This is a very shallow 'tray' and I was surprised when I saw Val Monk's estimate era as 1970's/1980's, as I thought it would be older than that....?

A piece of Hanmer pottery to replace the sugar that I gave to the Sallies.
A miniature vase - I think ...?
The glaze feels like silk ...... so smooth and soft.
