I spotted it in a box of other pieces at auction although not as cheap as I would have liked it was extremely reasonable and 6 years ago would have been worth about 5 times more than I paid for it , happy days.

Or may be a special order 16" platter in Magic Moments. another very recent purchase.

I feel that much of the retro pottery or less it is truly stunning rare or both prices have drifted considerably in the last 6 years , but the past tells us it will rise like a phoenix to new highs as and when the money returns to the market , time to buy folks , mind you I did pay considerable dollar for this set , but when will you see it again in that amount .

Elstree patterned gravy boat saucer and ladle a very scarce pattern ,not to be confused with the more common Hollywood pattern that has grey stars rather than the blue, this is part of a full dinner service I have been luckily enough to buy from the original owners who bought it in 1958.

Good news and bad at the boot sale this am. Got these THREE for 50p but nearly got beaten up when I inadvertently went to kiss him in celebration. Funny thing was though, he had loads of expensive or correctly priced militaria, and then these, which he obviously hadn't researched and didn't rate at all (thank the FSM!). I suppose a black eye and 50p is still a bargain.

I think the "Country Garden" pattern dates from 1968 and it does fit the shape well.

A variation of Jessie Tait's Red Domino normally found on the Stylecraft shape , but in this case is a rework on the fashion shape , a nice set although you would expect it to be a 15 piece set .

There were more pieces but they were crazed or chipped. So maybe it would make sense to sell the pieces individually rather then a part set. Thanks for the info.

Crazing wasn't uncommon on Midwinter of this period so probably acceptable but chips are never acceptable with me unless prepared from potatoes.
