I know that Harry & May Davis didn't put a mark on their early NZ ware so there are quite few pieces only identifiable by their shape, decorations and expert craftsmanship. Could these ramekins be Crewenna?

Thanks for all of your recent posts Glenys Smile

There will be several key points to look at to see if these are made by Crewenna:

Glaze
Handle
Footring

They were already very experienced potters when they came to NZ, so they had their own style which was top rate. Using those three key points, I don't think that those ramekins were made by them.

It was the style of the glaze decoration that made me think of Crewenna.
