    This dish doesn't belong to any of our collections in particular, but Carlos has got it for some years now and we usually use it whenever we need a dish to present any kind of food, specially desserts... last night it was homemade brownies covered in white chocolate brought home by one of our dinner guests.

    I find it amazing that anyone would use furniture and forks and knives and flower pots to decorate a dishware range. Today I've found out Homemaker was a very popular design and it has actually become a classic!

    I am commenting no more about the dish or the range but I'm leaving two related links. The first one about the Homemaker range and the second one is the obituary for Enid Seeney at The Guardian.

    By the way, Carlos has just told me he's got a tea set "at the other house"!... I'm longing to go there again and see it!!!

      Thanks everyone for your loves and comments!

      @cobalt, well, not really.. this is Carlos's althoigh I confess wouldn't mind to have it as my everyday dishware at my own place... In any case, there will be more ceramics posted in here (but most of them will be Carlos's)

      Well, they were sold pretty cheaply at Woolworth's so I guess there must be a lot of them in the market... I absolute love them!
