Crown Lynn Jackpot

I hit the Crown Lynn Jackpot the other day at the op shop down the road....
(Sallies 5-x Roads)

I found a kitsch Pasifika basket in which to carry my stash home... (new picnic basket)



Here's my stash..It was mostly $1 per piece. 
Pretty jug.. ( maybe $2- I forget)


Royal Kitsch ($2.50)


COLOUR GLAZE (common name for a few lines of Crown Lynn)
This stuff is very desirable, especially the pink. 
This looks like an early piece.. (there were a few early-looking saucers) I love the detail on the  edges.
I have recently found the wonderful blog of Valerie Monk (thank you Indigo Violet!), who wrote  the Crown Lynn bible..
She posted about Colour Glaze here..

I adore the basket - it is so gorgeous. I wish someone could teach me to make one like that. You found some great CL pieces - well done.
