About this object
‘Shape code of new numbers’ – an index to Crown Lynn shape numbers.
This volume is an index and assigns a number to each shape produced from approximately 1964 to 1978.
From 1964, a new numbering system was introduced at Crown Lynn. Starting at 1000, it assigned shape numbers to pieces depending on their form. Products were also categorised according to whether they had earthenware or vitrified clay bodies, or were manufactured by slipcasting, press moulding or using other techniques. This volume is an index to those numbers. For each shape it gives a brief description and a date when it was first made. It also includes a list of shape numbers used prior to 1964, with omissions.

This page shows the numbers assigned to the various Wharetana Ware pieces, which were produced by Crown Lynn from approximately 1948 to 1952.
