As a break from looking at building details and wooden furniture I had a sudden fancy for more colour and started chasing down crockery, porcelain, vases and ornaments. There’s so much to choose from pattern-wise, from the Clarice Cliff to the Utility coloured which I always makes me think of staff rooms as the teachers’ used it when I was at infant/junior school. It came in blue, green, a very pleasant primrose or pink I believe. Then I came to my senses and I used my head for once and opened my own cupboards. Here’s a few examples of odd bits: some I suspect might be repros and possibly more of them will be 1950s rather than 30s.

I’ve included pics of the base of each for those interested in markings 😉
Used to have a few bits of Laburnum but during a clear out years back I only kept the jug. The green sugar bowls (a later repro I think) I use as dessert dishes. There’s a bit of a yellow to red theme going here but I do have the odd blue decorated item somewhere.
Now the page looks like a crockery catalogue! But it’s given me lots to think about if I end up decorating or making some bits.
