We thought that we’d highlight a recent addition to the ‘What’s Cooking’ department in our web shop.
These vintage enamel Worcester Ware saucepans are really gorgeous.
They’re part of the ‘Tudor Orange’ range and feature a lovely pattern of repeated stylised flowers.
Worcester Ware really are one of our favourite producers of this type of metalware from the 1960s era. They made pans, storage containers, waste paper bins, magazine racks, place mats, coasters and the like. They’re well made and colourful with many eye-catching designs.
These examples come unused in their original boxes – perfect for vintage lovers who like their homewares in pure & pristine condition!
We bought this gorgeous vintage chilli red enamel pan this week. It’s from the Kobenstyle range designed by Jens Quistgaard for Dansk Designs.
It was one object from a very colourful array picked up at a local flea market. We like them all, but the casserole has to be our favourite. We’ve always loved this design – it’s both practical and great to look at. The pans are hard-wearing and easy to manipulate & move around. The lid can also be turned upside down to act as a trivet for the hot pan. It’s an absolute kitchen classic!
This particular stamp (‘four duck’ logo & ‘Denmark’) means that the pan was produced in Denmark somewhere between 1959 & 1965. Later pieces were produced in France and Japan. It was out of production for quite a while, but the range has been re-issued and is now produced in Thailand.
So – a design we love, a sought after early example, great condition, amazing colour. This has all the hallmarks of a keeper! But no, stop the press, it’s for sale. The chilli red actually clashes with our orange kitchen scheme, so we’re going to let it go. It will absolutely perfect for someone out there. Available in our web shop now if that person is you!
