Colour Glaze crockery
This is going to be a bit of a nerdy blog, I'm afraid. And I won't be able to do it all in one post as I guess I'm a C L collector and I have got LOADS of it...
Crown Lynn is a New Zealand institution( Fab facebook page linked in there). Until the 80s it churned out terrific table ware and decor delights, and it has become extremely collectible in recent years.
When I began 'thrifting' Crown Lynn was EVERYWHERE. It still kind of is, but certain lines are very collectible and the price reflects..
But more about that in other collection posts..
|This is COLOUR GLAZE|
|It had other names at different times too, as they made it for YEARS and YEARS.|
|The idea was that if a bit got broken you could just get some more from the factory..|
|I coveted this for a while and actively sought it...|
|Embarrassingly, this is probably a third of my Colour Glaze dinner ware..|
|Normal sized bowl on the left, pasta bowl on the right.|
Another thing about C L is their practicality..
|That's a normal sized cup on the right, and on the left a 'MAN CUP' !! LOL |
They are quite hard to find and I am lucky enough to have 3 duos..
|MAN and LADY|
|That's a little dish on the left. I think it's called a PIN DISH somehow.. |
But they're pretty cute. Bread and butter plate on right..
Check that link out.. it's my ultimate covet.. FIESTA is the range.. and it is nearly impossible to get a set like that!!! FIESTA
