This is an unamed pattern, Storm Kites is my name. As far as we are aware this is the only known example in this pattern. This shape should have a lid, but the present owner does not have one. Has anyone else seen an example of this pattern? We would love to have its pattern number.

I have also seen this pattern called Harebell. This is a very interesting find, the cups and saucers are all marked with the W&R maker's mark while the coffee pot, sugar bowl and creamer are marked with the Handcraft mark. I believe these date from the cross over period during which the W&R mark was being fazed out. These pieces would have been made and the back stamp put on and then left in the glost warehouse until they where decorated. It is my belief that there must have been more cups and saucers with the W&R mark than there where coffee pots, creamers and sugar bowls so this explains the mix of marks. I have seen this mix of marks on a coffee set on an Awakening Coffee set held by the "Dulcie Agnes Joyce Memorial Collection". The other intereting fact is that the reg number 721741 was on the base - this number was issued in mid 1927. In the past I have found that these numbers seem to predate production by up to a year.

C.W. Handcraft Zig Zag (shape 442) - pattern number not known

Image courtesy of "Dulcie Agnes Joyce Memorial Collection

Provenance: This vase was part of  James King's collection. James King is a well known Candian collector who was known for his outstanding Handcraft collection. 

As far as I am aware these are the only examples of the Zig Zag pattern. There is some conjecture over the name of this pattern; some say Lightning while others say Zigzag. I have looked very carefully at these patterns and have decided that they are two different patterns. Pattern 3299 is Zig Zag (production circa 1928); I believe that the two examples shown above are trial pieces. The Lightning patterns 3356 – 3357 – 3692; where made later. They are not as busy as Zig Zag, but there is no doubting that they are of the same school.

Not the prettiest piece in the world, but it is the only example of this colour-way the panel or I known to exist. I feel that it was a trial piece and that it has not been finished. I would suggest that at least one more pin stripe of colour and the gilding has been left off. Has any body else seen an example of this colour-way?

Hi Bruce, I have a vase in the blue lightening pattern. For those who hold blue as their favourite colour , this one has great appeal. It also happens to be in my favorite shape, No: 467. I have 12 in this shape with everything from tublined, handcraft and best ware patterns.
