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.

Just add salt, pepper and a sprinkling of Hornsea geometrics.

These salt and pepper pots certainly have a strong and colourful retro look. The simple cylinder shapes are livened up with bright, geometric screen printed designs.

Made by Hornsea Pottery, these are just a small sample from a large range of geometric cruets produced in the early 1970s. The tall yellow salt pot has a wooden lid and was produced in 1971. The smaller teardrop pots have gold coloured plastic lids and date from 1977 - 1978. I'm not sure if the white pots are from the Geometric range too. They're by Hornsea Pottery and sort of fit in with the others.

A great way to brighten up the breakfast table. I'm on the look out for more designs in the series.



  1. These Hornsea pots look so stylish. I wish I had room to collect them myself, but its nice your sharing the photos. Thanks Potshots

  2. Thanks Rob. Being new to blogging, it's exciting to know someone is even looking at the site. Better still if it's someone who likes the pots too.

  3. You have great taste! Those are some of the best Hornsea pottery pieces I've seen.

  4. I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your blog. Your passion and knowledge shines through in all your descriptions, and your collection of pots is fab!!

  5. To Anonymous. That's very nice of you to say so, whoever you are. I hope you will continue to look in from time to time, I have quite a few more interesting items to show.
