Retro Czech Coffee Set

R300.00

I’m completely head over heels in love with today’s coffee set! It was manufactured by Czech company Kavalier, under their brand, Simax, which first entered the market in 1958 when the glassworks perfected their borosilicate glass*. Looking at the style of today’s set I’d guess that it dates to a few years down the line, and was probably made in the 1970s. Not that it matters – it has such a contemporary look to it, and is in such perfect condition, it may as well have been made yesterday! I love the overall design, but I’m particularly taken with the saucers, which almost sit completely flat – just fantastic!!

* Borosilicate glass contains silica and boron trioxide, making it more resistant to thermal shock than ordinary glass

Dimensions: Coffee pot – 16.5cm tall x 11.5cm in diameter; Cups – 5.5cm tall x 7cm in diameter; Saucers – 14cm in diameter; Deep bowl – 5cm tall x 9cm in diameter; Shallow bowl/lid – 2.5cm tall x 10cm in diameter
