When I look at these gravy boats I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t love retro designs! Seriously, aren’t they just fantastic? Both designs date to the 1950s (Midwinter ‘Stylecraft’ was introduced in 1953, and Meakin ‘Studio Ware’ in 1954), but you wouldn’t know it judging by their condition – barely a mark on them!

A fantastic pair and a great example of why we all love retro so much!

Note: The Meakin gravy boat has a manufacturing defect where the glaze hasn’t quite taken (see pics under ‘more’).

Dimensions: Midwinter gravy boat – 12.5cm wide x 20cm long x 8.5cm tall; Meakin gravy boat – 9.5cm wide x 23cm long x 8cm tall

Price: R110 each (Midwinter SOLD)
