J&G Meakin Part Coffee Set – SOLD

J&G Meakin part coffee set

J&G Meakin part coffee set

This is the coffee set that belonged to the J&G Meakin side plates that we sold yesterday. I decided to separate the plates from the rest of the set because there are only five cups & saucers, and six side plates. In addition to the missing cup there’s also a hairline crack on the handle of the milk jug, but other than that this set is in excellent condition for its 45-plus years!

A super cool ’60s design that will look wonderful sitting on your kitchen shelf!

Dimensions: Coffee pot – 15cm tall x 12cm in diameter; Milk jug – 9cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter; Sugar bowl – 7cm tall x 11cm in diameter; Cups – 8cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter; Saucers -14.5cm in diameter

Price: R280 for the set (13 pieces in total)

J&G Meakin Side Plates – SOLD

You don’t get more ’60s flower-power than this set of J&G Meakin side plates! I just love that bold pattern, and the pinks that they’ve used in the design are so pretty! The pattern is called ‘Filigree‘ and was designed in 1969. For the most part the plates are in good nick for their years, but there are a few scratches here and there – nothing too serious though.

A lovely set of retro side plates for the next time you have the girls (or boys) over for tea and cake!

Dimensions: Each plate measures 18cm in diameter

Price: R140 for the set of six

Meakin Coffee Pot and Jug – SOLD

J&G Meakin coffee pot & water jug

J&G Meakin coffee pot & water jug

How handsome is this pair? I’ve always loved this rather masculine style of coffee pot from J&G Meakin, so to find a matching water jug is just great! Both pieces have a speckled glaze (not that visible in the photos), with a lovely matte texture.

A great example of ’70s design in near mint condition.

Dimensions: Coffee pot – 24cm tall x 10cm in diameter; Water jug – 19cm tall x 10.5cm in diameter

Price: Coffee pot – R160; Water jug – R95/R240 for the pair

Retro Meakin Casserole Dishes – SOLD

Retro Alfred Meakin casserole dishes

Retro J&G Meakin casserole dishes

I love the shape of these retro J&G Meakin casserole dishes! The maker’s mark dates them to between 1954 and 1960, which is very much in keeping with the style of the dishes. I love the retro handles, both on the lids and on the sides of the dishes – such great retro flair! There are quite a few manufacturing defects in the glaze (see pics under ‘more’), and on the yellow dish you can actually see where someone’s touched up the glaze after the fact, although looking at how well it matches, the touch up looks like it was definitely done in the Meakin factory.

A great pair of serving dishes that will hopefully stay together – the colours contrast so beautifully!

Dimensions: Each dish measures 25cm long (incl. handles) x 22cm wide x 10cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R165 each/R300 for the pair

Retro Gravy Boats – SOLD

Pair of retro gravy boats

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)

Meakin Casserole Dish – SOLD

J&G Meakin 'Glamour' casserole dish

J&G Meakin ‘Glamour’ casserole dish

This beautiful buttercup-yellow casserole dish from J&G Meakin dates to sometime between 1918 and 1963 (that’s when Sol Ware was produced), but I’d guess that this particular shape was designed in the late 1940s, or early ’50s. I love the shape of the lid (so graceful!), and the glaze, while not wildly exciting, is still very pretty. There are a few very minor marks, but given its age, this casserole dish is in pretty decent nick!

Dimensions: 22cm in diameter x 13cm tall

Price: R150
