Retro Dutch Enamel Pots (Each)

R175.00R290.00

These are some of the most expensive enamel pots I’ve ever bought, but I’d never come across a set quite like it before, so I just had to have it! They were designed in 1954 by Dutch industrial designer, Willem Gilles (1923-2002) for DRU Holland (Diepenbrock en Reigers te Ulft). The pattern, which I just love, is called ‘Confetti’ in reference to the little red and yellow dots that decorate the side of the dishes. Another interesting design element is the concentric circles on the bright yellow lids, and the way in which the handles are formed out of the same piece of metal as the lids themselves – really interesting, and super quirky! Obviously this set has been well used over the years, but they’re from good quality enamel, and so while they have a few dings – and quite a lot of scratches! – some 65 years after they were made, they’re still completely functional – and completely beautiful!

P.S. Make sure you scroll right to the end of the photos to see an original advertisement for Confetti cookware – the ad is highlighting the fact that the pots are so attractive they can go straight from the oven to the dining room table!
