Malachite A
« on: September 18, 2007, 12:42:42 PM »
I am sorting out some of my older acquisitions, I was waiting for my copy of Hajdamach to arrive, hopefully to work out the makers of some malachite I can't place, but no... not in there...

I've now ordered a copy of Jenny Thompson, in the hope I can work out my patterns in the future, but that will be about 5 weeks away.  So in the meantime, I hope you don't mind, I'm putting some of my unknowns here for some help.

This first one is a little helmet shaped creamer - nice strap work on a stippled background.  Seems that the stippled background is mostly Davidson - might that be right?

unmarked purple slag (PLEASE!) is quite often French, not British. Your creamer is most probably from France, where several makers used this colour.
