This Guzzini picnic set (or Pic Boll to give it its proper name) epitomises the 1970s! It’s orange, it’s moulded plastic and it’s a perfect space-saving bit of design. It was designed in 1977 by Carlo Viglino, here’s a great vintage ad from the time. This example is for sale by Kiveton Park & Wales Community Development Trust* with a starting bid of £9.99. They generally sell for between £20 & £30.

*The mission of Kiveton Park & Wales Community Development Trust is to provide the means by which the communities in Wales Parish can play an active part in the regeneration of their neighbourhoods so as to improve facilities, increase opportunities and enhance the quality of life of all residents.

Comprising kitchen apron & oven glove, there’ll certainly be no groovier attired rival vying for the title. It dates from the 1960s/70s and comes unused in the original packaging.

Etsy List: Clockwatching

H is for Home 'Clockwatching' Etsy List

Clocks and watches are almost things of the past thanks to everyone having a mobile phone with time, date, alarm and even timer functions.

Week days during my early school life began with me slamming down on the knob of a purple Westclox ‘Big Ben’ pedestal clock. Years later, this gave way to a boxy Sony Digimatic clock alarm radio. Today, we still have a Sony clock alarm radio – this time, a Dream Machine – shaped like a cube with LED numbers and snooze button. A ticking clock, like a dripping tap, would keep me awake all night!

We have a fantastic vintage Seth Thomas starburst clock in our lounge and another Metamec version on the top floor – both beautiful mid century modern icons!
