Grindley 'Romany Rye' dessert set

Grindley ‘Romany Rye’ dessert set

When I bought this lovely 1950s Grindley dessert set it was complete, and in perfect nick! Such a treat! But then I managed to break one of the bowls (and my heart in the process!). Previously when I had an incomplete set, I would reduce it to a set of four – people always seem to prefer even numbers – but then I thought, wouldn’t you rather have as many plates or bowls as you could? The maker’s mark on the bowls was in use from 1954, and the shape is very much in keeping with that time – I love how fluid it is!

A beautifully retro set that you’re going to get plenty of use out of – these bowls are the perfect size for everything from breakfast cereal to a nice healthy serving of pasta!

Dimensions: Serving bowl – 23cm long x 20cm wide x 8cm deep; dessert bowls – 15cm long x 13cm wide x 5cm deep

Price: R220 for the set
