Val has shown us in her blog (I think) how Crown Lynn's Cook & Serve "Mogambo" design can also be seen on a Pyrex (?) container, "Blue Sapphire" has been seen on English tiles, and Rorstrand's Marianne Westman's "Tango" design has been used on Cook & Serve tableware and bakeware.

And now for an instant transformation from glass to ceramic (or vice versa), have a look at this picture of one of my favourite Titianware/Crown Lynn four digit mugs, the 1216 ...

Now rub your eyes and check out the Anchor Hocking "Fire King" "Kimberly Diamond" in "Peach Lustreware" finish American glass mug below.

If you want to buy a pair of these visit the auction at http://www.trademe.co.nz/antiques-collectables/art-deco-retro/kitchenware/photos/a-661701160/p-267613089.htm

When you sit them side by side, the Crown Lynn is a better formed shape, has eyebrows between the top diamonds that the Fire King doesn't have, so, arguing with myself, I don't know who's copying, or whether they are both copied from a completely different original.

And for more on "Kimberly Diamond":

21/1/14 New Pics. Found this at Dargaville a few weeks back.
Although effectively the same size the Crown Lynn is fractionally smaller, so, allowing for shrinkage of mould and shrinkage of casting, it is the copy. Better fettled though!
The eyebrows noted above are in the glaze only. They are the same shape.
