Lovely sylvan ware dish dating from the early 1930s. It measures 6 inches in diameter and is glazed in mottled blue, M73.

Twin tone teapots C102


In the less commonly seen twin tone combination of moonstone grey and lime yellow, these large and small tea pots were produced between 1956 and 1957.    Clearly a less popular combination of colours.
