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.

Hornsea Summertime with a nod to Kitschenpink

As a quick follow-on to the last blogpost on the Hornsea Summit range, and in response to a comment from Teena at Kitschenpink, here are some photos of the Summertime range by Hornsea Pottery. The range was produced between 1962 and 1964.

The range does have many similarities to the Summit range. Like Summit, the Summertime range has white bodies with fluted stripes of colour inlay but on the Summertime range, the stripes are slightly narrower and closer together. The Summertime range also features the addition of co-ordinating plastic lids, which add a nice splash of colour.

So, big thanks to Teena for her comments on Summertime and for giving me the inspiration to do this blogpost.


  1. Wow, what an elegant design..same shapes and lids as "springtime" by the look of it.

  2. Gasp and sigh! What a lovely post, I'm now a follower:)

  3. I just picked up a couple of pieces of this design in a charity shop today, two small lidded jars, maybe for spices? Had never seen it before but it's so lovely I want more!
