Clockwise from bottom left: Scheurich, unknown form (can’t read the bottom!); 549-21; 517-45; 549-21; and last but never least… 414-16. I don’t know what the glaze is called. Had a quick P&G forum trawl, but nothing so far. Will update when found.
The titchy one at the front is an unknown entity. The number is not only obscured but looks strangely stretched, making it impossible to read. Aidan found it in the loft on Sunday; I don’t even remember buying it. Big 517 came from Aidan’s dad. It is an oddly deformed pot, presumably done during the manufacturing process. It has a slightly flattened side to it and some strange, blue marks on it. The 414 was found in Morecambe last week (yay!) and the other two are also unknown surprises! One was found in the loft a couple of weeks ago, and who knows whether the other came from?
Is that the sign of a collector – when you can’t remember where everything came from? Or is a true and avid fan able to recall every fine detail and fact? Hmmm, something to ponder.
