David,

I've e-mailed the photos. I'll be at Dulwich, so I'll bring the dishes along. I'll probably be at Gaydon the week before too.
I wonder what might be on the "diamond" shaped dish?  :o

Robbo, thanks for the photos they really are good  :clap: :D

I'll take my 3-seg. tray to Dulwich, so it will save you lugging that along. I look forward to seeing the other two patterns. I know there is a diamond tray (as well as small and large bowls) so all these could feature different designs. Fascinating to find out! I have been in touch with Carola, the Casson's daughter, but sadly she will be unable to make Dulwich :-\

I guess they're not red maple or copper beech :spls: Somebody somewhere must have them in their cupboard! I suppose only time will tell.

I still haven't found "Wild Rice" or "Golden Lagoon". Since having da book I have to check the pyrex to make sure it's not Orlak....and look at all the Calypto to check there's no Koala hiding amongst the leaves ::)

I do know someone with, I think, a full set of Green Leaves! Orlak and Wild Rice are toughies, but I do have a large triangular Golden Lagoon dish.
