I think that Wood’s Ware must be one of the most timeless designs – looking at this beautiful coffee pot you’d never guess that it was first produced in the 1940s! Aside from the fact that it’s in near mint condition, the simplicity of the shape with nothing but a few lines for decoration, could so easily have been designed today. Wood’s manufactured this same design in a variety of different coloured glazes, with this pale green earthenware glaze being called ‘Beryl‘.

A great piece of art deco design inspired by the the austerity measures introduced during the war years – necessity, the mother of all inventions!

Dimensions: 19cm tall x 10cm in diameter
