Milk and two sugars please......

Who would have thought that one of today’s most desirable ranges of tableware was once sold at the long gone Woolworth’s at two and a half pence a piece!
The ´Homemaker´ range for Ridgway Potteries (Stoke-on-Trent) was designed in 1957 by Enid Seeney, a student of the Burslem School of Art, and features a pattern composed of an eclectic mix of furniture and other household objects such as a carving knife, fork and plant pot.  Included in this mix are great design icons such as a Robin Day armchair and a Sigvard Bernadotte sofa and sideboard. These abstract black and white designs are so typical of the era and adorned everything from saucers to serving bowls. The timeless elegance of the design make this one of the most beautiful and collectible Fifties Sets around.
