    A dollar each was the price on the tag at the Salvos last Tuesday!

    On the net I found some other information:
    "A contact who collects Carlton Ware literature says: 'The first Wellington ad I have is dated Feb. 1971 and it seems that this range was introduced at the Blackpool Trade fair in Feb. that year.'

    Ribbed or flanged, they resemble the electrical insulators on power lines, or the flanged iron candlestick designs of Robert Welch (1962), and the glass Festivo candlesticks of Timo Sarpaneva for Littala (1967).

    The Carlton Ware Wellington range was produced in bright yellow, lime green or orange, sometimes with dark brown trim; in white or dark blue with floral patterns; in glossy, under-glaze chocolate brown; and plain, glazed white, black, sky blue or cream; or white grading into brown."

    Coffee sets, vases and candle holders (with a total of 2, 3 or 5 flanges) are seen, and very rarely a butter dish. A mustard brown variant is seen with an impressed number but no Carlton Ware stamp. These pieces very often have chips or cracks or crazing. Candlesticks may show damage to the cup where wax has been gouged out with a knife. With the red ones, the colour is overglaze and therefore does not craze - but is very prone to chipping, and often shows pinpoint losses.

    Surprisingly, for such classic space-age items, they are hardly collected at this time.

    'Wellington' was a design introduced in the early 1970s.

    The design is an overall bright peacock blue ground with no ribbing and a plain cream underside neither of which shows any crazing.

    Each measures approximately 1.75 inches (4.25 cms) in height with a top diameter of 3 inches (7.5cms) and is in excellent condition.

    Another orange example had this information:
    "The base is back-stamped appropriately and shows shape number 2974."

    Perhaps someone know who designed the Waterloo Range?

    One of them has the Design Centre sticker too!

    I have been collecting anything with the Design Centre sticker on it!

      Hi Jay! In Australia we import so much. Historically a lot of these imports come from England. Design in England after WWII is a topic in itself. The Design Centre sticker was a way of pushing post-war industrial production. The English were competing with not just the USA but the Germans, the Scandinavians, the Japanese et al.. They no longer had a stranglehold over their Commonwealth! That little sticker was an English seal of design approval. It is an emblem of post-war modernism ..... Which has been a focus of my collecting. An object with that sticker has a bit more cachet!
