Retro Melamine Jugs & Sugar Bowl (Set)

R135.00

In the 1950s and 1960s you wouldn’t be at all offended if your host served you your dinner on plastic plates – in fact for a time people thought that Melamine tableware might replace traditional ceramics in the dining room. This new and modern dinnerware was made from Melamine Formaldehyde, and according to the manufacturers was almost unbreakable! A great selling point for the 1950s housewife! Obviously Melamine never replaced ceramics, but if you look at today’s little set, they certainly lived up to the promise of being hard wearing – sixty odd years later, and they’re still in pretty great nick!

Dimensions: Medium jug – 13cm tall x 10.5 cm in diameter; Small jug – 7cm tall x 10 cm in diameter; Sugar bowl – 5.5cm tall x 10cm in diameter
