Worcester Ware (England)

Post by Pip on June 28th 2010, 4:02 pm

Worcester Ware produced tin trays, placemats and other household/kitchen items - they're most well known for their 'Beatles' range which revived their flagging fortunes for a short while in the mid 1960s.

Here is a set of 6 Worcester Ware tin placemats dating from the early 1960s (although the style of illustration is more typically 1950s). They show 3 different scenes of Paris and are cork backed. I really like them.

This is one of my favourite Worcester Ware pieces - a printed tin magazine rack,
but they are getting incredibly hard to find especially without scratches.
