Some say that modern designs are in some ways soulless when compared to the beauty of items from decades past.
For the area of vintage tea and coffee we could not agree more!

In the early to mid 20th Century, there were many potteries both here in the UK, and further afield, and the only way that they were able to compete and to stay in business was to create stunning pieces that captured peoples imaginations.
As you will see from the selection of items above, this need for competition created some iconic designs which far exceed modern offerings.
The world of design is cyclical and what 10 years ago may have seemed outdated, is now, very much in vogue.
Some would also argue that pieces such as the Tiko Coffee set by Ellgreave potteries is a timeless design especially in the exceedingly rare cobalt blue variation.
