A bit earlier Brin, It's "Gaiety" from 1964-5. There are several colourways.
They re-used the moulds from the 1963 "Slipware" range.

"The girl with the tree-like hair" Muramic. A recent purchase, after looking for this
one for so long. An iconic Clappison design.

I think there was one a while back that was unsold (high reserve).
This last meeting's one was damaged around the lampholder area,
Over-tightened probably, and had been badly repaired with brown glue.
The member who won it said he knew a good restorer, and it would be a
fairly easy job, as there was nothing missing.
He still paid a fair bit for it as I remember.
An impressive item, but strangely did nothing for me.

Y-shaped flower holders 301 & 302.
The book attributes these to Marion Campbell (1957). but were actually designed
by John Clappison.
He was rather embarassed, even ashamed, to have been required to plagiarise an
iconic Stig Lindberg design.
There is also a pale blue version.

An unusual double fish Muramic at today's Hornsea meeting. They were sold in kit-form
to assemble yourself, but with the rear paper label, this may have been a shop display
or factory sample.

Seven Dwarfs mug, dated 1972 on the base. No credit to Disney, though clearly inspired by their versions of the characters.

Charisma

Post by hercules brabazon on October 22nd 2017, 4:38 pm

Charisma coffee cup. According to the book, "Charisma" was produced in 1979-80 using the shapes from Martin Hunt's "Concept" range. Nicely designed transfer print, vaguely reminiscent of Paul Klee.

Sorry. I do indeed. Applying the transfer to the "Concept" shapes would have been a little difficult.

Hi,
Hoping one of the Hornsea experts here might be able to throw some light on a recent find which I'm having trouble identifying! (see photos):

- it appears to be some sort of small urn or planter with a dark brown matt finish (unglazed?) similar in texture/appearance to Wedgwood's Jasperware - and similar in colour to the undecorated parts of Hornsea's "Contrast" and "Palatine" ranges of dinnerware)

It's about 95mm in height, 90mm wide (rim) (67mm wide (foot/base)) and weighs about 255g

The backstamp (in white) shows two doves and an unbroken single-line date-code of 8 dots all encircled by "LANCASTER VITRAMIC HORNSEA ENGLAND"
(as per pattern H21 shown here :http://eastgatenhornsea.com/backstamp.php - indicating a manufacture date between 1978-1980)

I've seen near-identical items on eBay described as Grecian Urns - exactly the same size and shape but in white and brown glazes, marked with the twin doves trademark logo, "Hornsea England" and date code (2 lines of dots) (as per pattern H23 (1980-87) - see link).

Other urns/vases with a very similar style and finish appear to be very rare/uncommon - I could find no others currently online except :
https://pin.it/F9eUvVj
https://pin.it/MxeCM-v

Any other info. (pattern range, designer, exact date of manufacture etc.) - would be greatly appreciated.

At the centre of the backstamp there is a small pin-hole going into the base (hollow?) - †presumably an air/steam-release vent to prevent explosion during firing? ... or is there some other reason?


Thanks in advance.

[EDIT: just found several examples of similarly patterned white urns/amphora under the Hornsea "White Wedding"/"Classic" ("Doric"?) range †- some with charcoal inlay, - †and one in brown from the 1980's (with design(er) details etc.) - see: https://www.instagram.com/p/BWm78ZqBeOM/ † †

- but would still welcome any further info about the "Grecian urn" (is it part of the same set as white wedding?) - and how to decipher the Hornsea dot-dating code! ]

Many Hornsea items were reproduced at their Lancaster factory, using the chocolate
and the white high-fired clays, as used for the "contrast" and other tableware ranges.
