I have seen the frog transfer on the forum before but not so sure about the pukeko? It looks a bit like a pukeko?? These were found together. Were they mixed animal sets?

Hi Mike Smile
Val uses the Pukeko as her avatar but it's a lot more vibrant.

Hello from the pukeko! Yes I have a pukeko mug and also a desert bowl. They look 1980s to me but just a guess. Mine are much brighter. Mike I wonder if yours has been thru a dishwasher too often. Incidentally I don't remember ever seeing that frog for all my trawling thru op shops.

I haven't come across any records for these yet and the similar pattern placement makes me wonder if they are part of a set.

After posting the pukeko yesterday I remembered Val had the pukeko as her avatar. Yep badly dishwasher-ed but I had to buy them. The ring of small frogs and pukekos around the edges indicate they were at least part of the same series I guess.

Just noticed that the Pukeko pattern wasn't in the Gallery, so I will add Val's photo and hope that the pattern name turns up one day Smile

So pleased to come across the artwork for these patterns at the Portage Museum this week!!!

The artwork calls them Frog and Pukeko, so I will move them into the Patterns Gallery using those names.

The folder these were in was titled
"Funny Animal Mugs"
(M Cleverley era)
The patterns were both together.

Both patterns were made in a 771/5 Side Plate, 770 Bowl and a 3056 Mug.

Pukeko and Frog Empty Are there two pukeko bowls then?

Post  mumof1 Thu 4 Feb - 20:47

Maryr, does your dessert bowl have just the pukeko in the middle (as mine does) or does it have the ring of pukekos around it also? I am wondering why mine is different from the one mike67 has.
