New fishy Picknick pot

I was very pleased to find this new addition to my collection of Rorstrand Picknick ceramics. It differs in shape from the fruit and veg pots and has a fish design outlined in black over a thick blue band in the middle with further bands at the top and bottom. But it has the same distinctive lid and the fish motif also appears on the large Picknick tray..

Dartington glass

This week on ebay I am selling some nice functional examples of Dartington Glass. The 'Daisy' bowls came in a range of sizes, the boxed ones are the smallest. They have a lovely frosted appearance. Despite their 'Flower Power' looks I think they were actually designed in the 1980s.

I am also selling some Dartington sweetcorn dishes which I think date from the 1970s.. I love the cute little forks that come with these..
