Lamberts Urn

Post  samski on Sun Mar 01, 2009 6:44 am

I have a large lidded urn - green trickle glazed and it has Lamberts inscribed on the base. Is this NZ? Does anyone know anything that can help me out? I remember reading something about Lamberts potters in Dunedin in the early 19th century.

here are the photos ..





yes there were Lamberts in pottery and there is mention in Gail Henry's NZ Pottery book but I think these might be ceramic class examples ...just a feeling ....would love to hear what everyone else has to say ... Very Happy

Ah yes, now that you mention it, it does look like something from a ceramics class. I thought it must be old as it was so incredibly dirty - it was almost black and took an hour to clean on one side!

There is some information on pages 42- 44 of Gail Henry's NZ Pottery book about Lambert Brothers ... you might be able to get a copy from the library if you don't have one. As I say though I suspect its home ceramics made...
