Cortina and lookalike glazes

Post by Pip on January 12th 2009, 2:17 pm

I just wanted to put this down somewhere for reference re: the Jasba 'Cortina' decor - as we know there were several companies that made items with similar glazes at around the same time. So as well as the Jasba Cortina, there's a similar glazed used by Jopeko (if I remember rightly) usually with the addition of three coloured dots, Hornsea used a similar glaze for their 'Coastline' range by John Clappison and today I found a Denby glaze (also called 'Cortina'!!!) designed by Tibor Reich - all 1950s output.

It'd be good if members could post images of any pieces they have (I have, somewhere, examples of most of the above - which I will try and post here shortly).

Very interesting Pip I'll list the only one I have (a fischmaul) shortly but need to see if I can ID the maker from the other listings. The other interesting thing is that I recently re-found in a linen box in my attic the curtains Mum had hanging when I was a child and they're Tibor Reich who I've been trying to find out more about. Life's full of coincidences!

Here's the only one I have and I'm fairly sure it's a Jasba. As far as I know this shape of top rim is called 'fischmaul' (forgive my spelling) in German and translates roughly to 'fish mouth'. Isn't this type of glaze called 'schrumpflasur' (forgive the definitely incorrect spelling) in German? I was always led to believe that it very roughly translated to 'shrinking glaze' but I could be totally wrong on that. Very interesting thread this could be Pip, thanks.

Thanks for that Raine - yes this is a type of reduction glaze, I didn't know about the 'Fischmaul' shape though Jumping For Joy
