We start with a trio of coffee pots. At the back is a tall coffee pot produced by Briglin Pottery in the 1960s – in our favourite wax resist sunflower design. To the foreground are two enamel pots – the orange one (dating from the 1960s/70s) has no maker’s marks, but is a fabulous colour & shape. The green & white pot is by Cathrineholm of Norway – from the much in demand ‘Lotus’ range designed by Grete Prytz Kittelsen in the 1950s.

Moving onto some Mid Century Modern stainless steel. First we have the little mustard pot still with its original spoon. This was designed by Robert Welch for Old Hall.  The set of tea/dessert spoons was produced by Wostenholm of Sheffield – we love their big moon shaped bowls.

Bedroom items next – some unused 1970s patterned pillowcases in shades of orange and two green vintage enamel candle holders.

set of 4 vintage Chance Glass pin dishes

This set of snack dishes was made by Chance Glass – pieces with this psychedelic swirl design are steadily getting more sought after.

We think these two lidded pots might just be our favourites in the whole collection.  They’re Italian, hand painted and date from the 1950s. A pair of domestic goddesses!!

vintage Smiths desktop thermometer

And last but not least, we have this rather nice desk thermometer produced by Smiths in the 1950s or 60s. We fear its needle is about to plummet!
