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.

Sienna by Jessie Tait, 1960s

Some more examples of transfer printed pottery from the Midwinter range.

This graphic, three-colour pattern is Sienna. Designed in the 1960s by Jessie Tait, it features slabs of colour in greenish ochre and orange overlaid with a fine lattice of black linework. 

In 1962 Midwinter introduced the Fine shape for dinnerware. Sienna was one of the first designs to be used on the new shape. The pattern proved to be very popular and was still in production up to 1978. 

As there were so many items made, Sienna is not a particularly rare design – even so, it's still one of my favourites.
