Here's a link to pics of the tea and coffee pots and other Last Wave delights on the NZ Pottery website.
It is true that most charity shops are getting a real thrashing from collectors these days, but it's still possible to pick up treasures if you hit the right spot at the right time. I have noticed recently that some shops are really bumping up their prices, which is fair enough for quality items - but I don't like to see unrealistically high prices on battered and worn Crown Lynn. It does put people off.
Anyway. That's my little whinge for today. Most of my treasures have come from op shops, though I do buy on TradeMe if I find something I really need to have. This lovely little dish, quite unusual, was at our local market at Onerahi. I didn't buy it and regret that now... how many times have we thought ah... I don't really need that - then been sorry later.
Oh dear. This is turning into a rather random post but my mind is on summer pursuits - there are snapper in the harbour and delicious sun-warmed tomatoes in the garden. Anyway, here is another opshop treasure. I got the cup years ago, and the saucer recently and yay they match.
And one last random opshop find. This plate, in the Elegance pattern, is the only one I have ever found.
Now I'm going... enough aimless meanderings! There's tomato relish to make. I hope you are enjoying our lovely long hot summer.
