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.
