This is a fabulous mid-century shallow gravy boat or jug. These are rare survivors and reflected in my asking price.
It has a fabulous geometric pattern and the design is called FANTASY.
I have a small selection of Fantasy serving plates and bowls etc in my Iconic Edinburgh online store - I would look at getting good postage quotes for you if you wish more than one item from my shop.
The pattern was designed in 1953 by the celebrated British ceramic designer, Jessie Tait (1928 - 2010) for Midwinter. She first worked as a junior designer to Charlotte Rhead, and then as a designer for the Midwinter Pottery between 1946 and 1974.
Many of her designs were mass-produced by the Midwinter Pottery on dinner services, and tea and coffee sets. In the 1950s these were hand painted, and well known designs included 'Red Domino' and 'Zambesi'. Her style was often detailed and geometric.
As you can see - this is a really stylish and highly collectable pattern - and this atomic Fantasy pattern is now becoming a much harder to find one.
My jug is in excellent vintage condition with no chips, cracks or crazing.
Dimensions: from spout to end of handle is 7 inches. Width is about 3 3/4 inches and the height is 2 1/2 inches.
