If we didn’t already have this cute little Rörstrand Granada dish we’d be bidding on it ourselves to add to our vintage Scandinavian pottery collection! It’s being sold on eBay for Charity by Teesside Hospice Care Foundation.

The Granada pattern was designed by Marianne Westman for Rörstrand of Sweden in the 1950s. It’s a very popular pattern and can be found on all manner of pottery items including oven & tableware, tea services, butter dishes. She also designed other patterns for them including Picknick, Frisco, Pomona, My Garden and the recently reissued Mon Amie.

*Teesside Hospice based in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough, was established in 1982 to enhance the lives of local people suffering from advanced cancer and other life limiting illnesses. They care for over 3,000 individuals in the Teesside region and all services are free of charge. Their annual running costs are £2.2million and they receive in the region of one third of these costs from the local NHS and must therefore raise approximately £4,600 each and every day of the year from their own resources.

This vintage Finel mushroom design bowl, by Kaj Franck, is up for sale on eBay by & in support of CLIC Sargent*. It’s on at a very reasonable price – buy it now for £44.99 plus there’s free P&P.

We regularly sell Finel enamel items in our web shop. We actually have this very bowl in our own personal collection. We love the black & white mushroom illustration. We’ve only ever seen the enamel bowl (in different sizes), but the design is available on a lidded saucepan, chopping board and even pottery cups, plates and bowls (for Arabia).

*CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. They provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
