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.

Vintage Harvest Tupperware. Pure retro and a perfect picnic pick.

Makes you want to go on a picnic, doesn't it?

I know it's a little off my usual subject of vintage, retro pottery. And although it's not pottery, vintage and retro it certainly is.

I found these Tupperware lidded bowls and cups recently and couldn't resist sharing them with you. I think the range name is Harvest and they're probably from the early 1970s.

The strong colours are brilliant and so typical of the 1970s era. I love the olive green and the dark orange colours. Remember this?: A retro colour palette

It's a combination of shape, colour and texture that make this vintage Tupperware look so good. But they are a joy for a couple of other reasons – they're thoughtfully designed and very well made, the lids are a good tight fit, they stack together for storing away, and they're so strong that they're virtually indestructible. Not only that but as we get further away from the 1970s, who knows? these simple picnic accessories and food storage containers may become a valuable collectable of the future.


  1. I love these, really juicy, zesty colours and I can see by looking at the pictures how well made and designed they are, just fab!

  2. We had the milk jug. I could never get the lid off as the air-tight seal was so effective. This led to lots of spilled milk!!

  3. haha, my parents owned a whole collection of these! wow, what a throwback...
