Vintage Homemaker tea trio | H is for Home

Just a quick little update to say that we’ve added a few new items to our web shop today. These are just three of half a dozen things.

First up, is the Homemaker tea trio designed by Enid Seeney for Ridgway Potteries in the 1950s. Next, is a Figgjo Flint Saga vase designed by Turid Gramstad Oliver. Finally, is a two-tone green ‘Palm’ design acrylic water or juice jug produced by Immanuel.

We bought it at auction this week but didn’t actually see it in the flesh until we picked it up. We weren’t disappointed though as the condition was very good and the grain of the wood is lovely.

Such a classic 1950s look and a really useful little side table for the lounge – great for our photo shoots & staging too!

This would normally leave us with the conundrum – sell or keep?…

…but we had no such problem this time as the auction price was for a pair!
