Whitefriars type dish
« on: July 05, 2007, 01:38:01 PM »
I have this little dish - rather like the Whitefriars Lotus, but I think they are all round tops and this has a wavy rim, and anyway, I think it is too small... only 5.5 ins 140 mm across the widest point. 

So, if it isn't WF, anyone any ideas of who it is?  It has a clean Scandi look to it, but that can be deceiving...  :-\

Lynne this looks OK to be WF to me - have a look at the 1964+ catalogues - pattern numbers 9516 and 9517 - I think yours is possibly the 9517 .... I have several of these in ruby and kingfisher blue and yours looks fine shapewise to me - not sure what colour it is though, I'm not very good at distinguishing between the greys and pale blues.

Thanks Pip!  Off to have a look.... oh and it's a sort of pale bluey grey...  ;D ;D ;D

Lynne I've just altered my post to read 9517 (sorry I transposed the 1 and the 7)...

As you probably know by now Lynne the 9517 appears in the 1964 and 66 catalogues but only in ruby, kingfisher blue and green - encased in clear - how does it compare to yours sizewise?  I wonder if WF produced these in a different colour under a different pattern number later?  Hopefully the WF oracle Emmi will be along to say yea or nay. 

DOH!  I've just seen that you say yours is 5.5in across - well that's spot on for size Lynne.

Ah, the moot point here would seem to be the casing.  This is not cased, seems to be all one shade of grey blue - I have a feeling that most of the WF pieces would be cased.

As you say, Emmi is bound to come over to play at some time... and she's ever so good on colours too.8)

Not so about the casing Lynne - I've had plenty of uncased WF especially it seems in these paler colours.

Ah, right.  So it goes on the unknown shelf for a bit then, until we get some more input.

Or you could bung it on the WF Is It in the meantime?
