Fashion on a Plate: 1950s Contemporary Tableware
The 1950s was an exciting and innovative period for ceramic design. When wartime controls on ceramic production were lifted in 1952, potteries set about changing the shape and pattern of everyday tableware. The new contemporary fashionable tableware featured organic and freeform shapes and bold, stylised and abstract patterns, This attractive and colourful exhibition includes many iconic pieces such as the 1950s design classic 'Homemaker' produced by Ridgway Potteries.
