I know it's only an egg cup. But it's a neat way to show off a nice bit of 1966 colouring.
This little egg cup is from a range of table ware by Midwinter Pottery and is in the pleasing Fine shape. A range which used simple, cylindrical forms with painted or printed decorations. The pattern is Mexicana from 1966 and it was designed by Jessie Tait. I like the combination of colours used in the hand-painted stripes. rust, ochre, olive, grey and black. They seem so typical of the objects, fashions and decorations of the mid-1960s.
