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.

A homespun delicacy from the 1960s

I promised to show some more Midwinter pottery. And to continue the theme of good looking printed surface design on pottery, here we have a nicely decorated Midwinter platter.

Produced in the 1960s, this pattern is known as Homespun. It was applied to a range of dinnerware in the attractive Fashion shape. The flatware carried this check design, the holloware (cups, jugs, sugar bowls, etc) that accompanied the set came in an all-over ochre colour.

I've included a close-up photo as I think it's worth taking a closer look at how delicately the line work in the design was drawn.

  1. Midwinter must a thrifting theme, as I just picked up a 'Graphic' large dinner plate by Jessie Tait!:)
