J & G Meakin Galaxy dinner service for sale by and in support of the British Heart Foundation | H is for Home(ends 30 Apr, 2014 19:43:51 BST)

This complete J & G Meakin Galaxy dinner service is currently up for sale by & on behalf of The British Heart Foundation*. It’s not listed as Galaxy, so perhaps not that many people have discovered it.

The Galaxy pattern was designed by Jessie Tait in 1973, one of the many popular ranges she produced. If you’re interested in finding out more about Tait and J & G Meakin, we highly recommend J and G Meakin Pottery: History in the Making by Chris Marks. You can also see many more of her designs on Flickr.

*British Heart Foundation is the nation’s heart charity. They help save lives with information, patient care and pioneering research. With your support, they’re beating heart disease for good.

J & G Meakin "Applewood" coffee pot and cup & saucer set

We picked up some of this fabulous vintage crockery this week. It’s one of our favourite designs with the sylised leaves & sliced apples.

J & G Meakin "Applewood" cup & saucer set

It’s only a part set, but that doesn’t really matter. We can either sell it as individual items or put it into our store cupboard to wait for the other pieces to complete the set. We’ve got lots of odd pieces waiting to make into sets!!!

It’s the J & G Meakin Applewood pattern produced in the 1960s – isn’t it gorgeous?!
