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.

Muramic retro style from the 1970s. Pin dishes for pin money

There's a Catherine wheel of colour on these pin dishes from the 1970s. Each one decorated with a touch of individual style. And best of all, you don't have to spend a fortune to pick one up for yourself.

As of writing this post, Hornsea Muramic pin dishes like these sell on Ebay for between £3.00 and £6.00, plus shipping.

That seems good value to me. Especially when you consider how they were made. The dishes were decorated by hand-applying concentric rings of different coloured liquid slip to the dishes on a turntable, then a stiff bristle was trailed across the rings to create the spiky effects.

The dishes were made from 1977 to 1980. There are smart dark brown bodied dishes. And, my favourites, these cream matt bodied dishes. They come in three diameter sizes, 3 and a half inch (approximately 9cm), 5 inch (approximately 12.5cm), and 6 inch (approximately 15cm). There are three or four colour schemes in each size.

Put two or three dishes together and they can look really good.
