Our last vintage menus post proved popular – and most of the examples that we featured in it prior to listing in the web shop have now sold.
We thought we’d share some more of our collection over the coming weeks…
…starting with this collection of cruise ship menus dating from the late 1960s.
They were produced for the German company, Norddeutscher Lloyd Bremen.
We like the combination of stark pen & ink drawing with bold, partial colouring. They’re very distinctive – the artist’s signature looks like Geißler, but we can’t seem to find any mention of him anywhere on the internet. Can anyone out there shed some light?
This particular set would look fabulous with simple black frames against a large expanse of white wall. The vibrant colours would really leap out and draw you in to take a closer look.
We picked up this lovely vintage porcelain teapot on Monday morning – a good start to the week!
A very striking piece in terms of both form and colour, it’s called the ‘Pop Teapot’ and was designed by Inger Persson for Rorstrand of Sweden in 1968.
It doesn’t just look great – it’s very ergonomic too. You need a teapot to feel good in the hand and pour well – which this one does. The integral stainless steel strainer is a very nice feature too.
Displays well and does the job well – a classic piece of design! We’ve noticed that the V&A museum has an example in their collection. Not to worry if you don’t drink tea either – it would sit quite happily amongst other pieces of art pottery or glass.
This brilliant red-orange example will be available in our web shop this week.
