South Pacific Pottery By Stewart Pottery New Zealand on the base.
It looks the same as the Orzel ones doesn't it?

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Thu 21 Aug - 21:43

(I read above now that Stewart Pottery has been mentioned previously.)

How many different potteries does that make that we know of?

Hemara Hemara made the bottle mould.


Orzel 1979 - 1984

Crown Lynn 1984 - 1985

Stewart Pottery made them for a few years in the late 1980's
They were difficult to ensure that the liquor did not seep through, so the early bottles we sealed with food quality hot wax. Hemara made the molds for us. and they were brown or green glaze.

Kermiko Ceramics "Larry Hadley in View Road"

"Kathy" and Hobby Ceramics

Aotearoa New Zealand run by Ruth Hirst and Karuna Douglas c2005 - 2007

Studio Ceramics from ? to 2017

Steiner Ceramics from 2017 .... still making


It sounds like a similar story to the Air New Zealand miniatures.
We appear to have an original designer for those.

It would be good to pin down the origins of the Ti-Toki bottle too.

Post  Ev on Tue 5 Dec - 6:19

Thanks to Ana on Facebook who found the names of Ruth Hirst and Karuna Douglas who made the crocks at Muriwai from 2005 to at least 2007 and they have Aotearoa New Zealand on the base.  They also mention numbers.  This information is in this Life and Leisure article https://ti-toki.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/lifeleisure-article-sept-oct-07.pdf

The article says that there have been four producers since starting in 1979.

I also want to include that Studio Ceramics were making the bottles up until they closed in May 2017.  Not sure when they started, but made them for at least a couple of years.

Bob Steiner was trying to get the job last I heard.

Hi there
My grandmother has come across a couple of these Ti Toki bottles - in great condition with the tags etc still intact. Are they rare and collectible? Any idea on worth? I have seen on ebay that the three on there go for upwards of $100 around the world. We arent interested in selling etc but my grandma wants to give some money to the lady who gave them to her
Thanks for any help or advice!

Hi there, these are not rare as they have been made for nearly 40 years. However they are very popular and collectable. They usually sell for around $100 on Trade Me, but one sold recently for $75

Post  Kamloopsbc on Thu 11 Jun - 15:31

Hi,
Wondering if I can get any info on this bottle. Age, maker, value, color?
Someone has drilled a hole it the base and the screw top, I assume to make a lamp.

Thanks in Advance
Mike

Hi Mike, This is a Crown Lynn Ti Toki bottle. If the holes were for a lamp, one would be in the lower side not the base. I have one in the same glaze and it was made in 1985 and it cost a fair bit, but it doesn't have any holes in it.

Thanks.How much is a fair amount? I think whoever put the holes in it planned for a lamp but yes bottom one should have been out the side. Wonder how much it hurts the value.

I paid $300 for mine, but I wouldn't have paid anywhere near that if it had holes in it.
Personally I think it would affect the price.

Many thanks to Larry Hadley for this information that he posted on Facebook NZ Commercial and Studio page...

Larry Hadley: Hi new Zealand Pottery, we manufactured thousands of Titoki over the years and had them filled in a winery just around the corner in Henderson, can't remember the name. We had our own mold making department and when weight and measures insisted that the bottle had to contain a consistent 500mls I made new blocks and molds to accommodate this.. you will note there is a double ring on the foot, thats my mark. Our bottles all had corks with black plastic tops like number 3 .We stopped manufacture and the production was passed to a husband and wife team out by the west Auckland beaches..
