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.

Let's face it. These cruets are absolutely spiffing

And to follow on from the Carltonware cat, I think these amusing face cruets are just fab.

Made by Carltonware in the 1970s, I have an idea they're from a range designed by Vivienne Brennan.

The monocled gentleman is a pepper pot, his hat is the salt pot. The maid salt pot has the butler's face on the reverse and the butler pepper pot has the maid's face on the reverse.

The three-colour illustrations are beautifully done and they work so well on the simple shapes of the white pottery.
