Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

It's Springtime Hornsea style


At last. It's nearly Spring.

And this is Springtime by Hornsea Pottery. From 1964 to 1965, this cheerful design is by John Clappison. Today, I think it looks wonderfully retro and so typical of the style of the mid 1960s. Simple flower illustrations are coloured with dark-green, orange and light-blue inlay. The square shaped bodies look smart and well proportioned. This kitchen range had storage jars, cruets, preserve pots as well as various items of tableware.

Springtime items do occasionally crop up on eBay. The storage jars and preserve pots seem to be more common but I suspect the mug or beaker is getting quite rare now.

Forty-odd  years old - and would still brighten up any kitchen shelf.
