Retro English Coffee Set

R290.00

I was photographing furniture until quite late yesterday, so by the time I got round to this fabulous coffee set (and the apothecary jar still to come) the light wasn’t the best – so apologies for the peculiar colours in these pics! Hopefully you’ll be able to look past that and see how wonderful this retro British Anchor coffee set is. British Anchor Pottery Co Ltd were in operation from 1884 until 1970, when they were incorporated into the Gailey Group, who seemingly rebranded British Anchor as Hostess Tableware. Presumably then today’s coffee set, with it’s wonderful bulbous shape and stylised floral pattern, dates to sometime in the 1960s, making it in the region of fifty years old. It’s in good nick for its years, although obviously incomplete with only four cups and saucers and no sugar bowl (it does have its milk jug, in my rush to beat the light I just forgot to photograph it!). But the remaining pieces are immaculate, and really a pleasure to behold!

A great bit of British design that I would happily hold onto – if I had any space left in our home that is!

Dimensions: Coffee pot – 27cm tall x 14cm in diameter (at its widest); Milk jug – 10cm tall x 8cm in diameter (at its widest); Cups – 8cm tall x 8cm in diameter; Saucers – 15cm in diameter

P.S. Unfortunately this item is too large for one of our courier packets, so will need to be boxed. To save on shipping costs, we’re happy to combine other items at no additional courier fee
