Collection of kitchenalia
I have to say, I really like all of these items! Sometimes when I put together groups of kitchenalia, one or two pieces might be a bit peculiar and not that practical (but always interesting!), but this collection is a nice functional bunch – and for the most part, in great nick! The Staffordshire Chef Ware blue and white jug is one of my favourites – it obviously has a very similar look to the TG Green Cornishware range, but is much more affordable, and in my opinion just as attractive. I think that the vintage jug with ridged glass and measurements down the side is actually part of a beater – I’m not 100% certain, but I think that I’ve seen the complete version somewhere on my travels. But it really doesn’t matter that it’s not complete – it works fine as a jug, and is far sturdier (and way more attractive!) than most measuring jugs you can buy today. The JAJ pyrex rolling pin is a real winner! I’ve sold a few of these pins over the years, but this is a particularly nice example with the original cork stoppers and nice clean glass. The art deco bowl is so sweet with the green accents and sandblasted stripes. There’s some minor damage to the underside of the lid, but it’s not in bad nick considering its age.
A great collection of odds and ends that will hopefully get plenty of use in your kitchen.
