I love the blue glaze on this Old Foley duo – it’s just the most lovely colour! And the red and white flowers offset it so beautifully. Old Foley is an English pottery house, but the style of this design reminds me of something that you might see in Japanese ceramics, which was clearly the inspiration – the pattern name is ‘Oriental Prunus‘. The shape is called Capri, and from what I’ve read online seems to date to the 1950s. I’m not 100% certain, but I think the little pot is intended for mustard, but you could also use it for jam, toothpicks – anything really!
A most delightful set that deserves to be appreciated.
Note: there is some wear to the rim of the dish and the pot (see pics under ‘more’)
Dimensions: Mustard pot – 6.5cm tall x 7cm long x 5cm wide; Dish – 19cm long x 13cm wide
Price: R165 for the set
