I think it probably goes without saying that I love the bright yellow glaze on the inside of this Villeroy & Boch baking dish! Bizarrely though, I also quite like the slightly kitsch textured black glaze on the outside of the dish – not only does it contrast beautifully with the yellow, but I think the unusual texture makes for an interesting feature. The dish appears to be in excellent condition for its years – I’m not sure exactly when it was made, but V&B made a pattern called ‘Biarritz’ in the 1950s that had the identical black & yellow colour combo, so it could well be from the same period.

Dimensions: 36cm long x 21cm wide x 5cm deep

P.S. These V&B baking dishes normally sell for around $40 – with our rather sad exchange rate that works out to about R500!

Price: R200
