Practical Pots

Post by big ed on Sat Jun 06, 2009 9:52 pm

I have just posted a plate / tile on the european thread (portugal ) I am amazed that this item was made as a kitchen /food accessory, I have the paperwork that was sold with it and the wrought iron stand also , did we really think it was ok to see this as a hotstone in the 60's 70's when it compares to the likes of Schaeffenacker or Noomi Backhausen , or is it only recently that we see it as art work , has anyone else got anything similar that was used for everyday use that you wouldn't dream of using now .

Sad Sadly, I remember lots of things from the past that have been used and broken, or binned as unfashionable that I'd love to still have now. I suppose that's the way it goes :con2:

Actually yes - I have a couple of 1950s/60s tile trivets that I wouldn't DREAM of putting hot pans onto - I have some modern stainless steel trivets that I use instead.

The other side of the coin is a woman who was enquring at one of the MCM shows that we did if a large Rorstrand Olle Alberius wall plaque could be used as a trivet in her kitchen for hot pans! I was amazed she would want to put pans on it and wouldn't have sold it to her to be used in that manner (even if she'd have wanted to buy it) - she was under the impression it was 'just' a large tile rather than a piece of pottery wallart and expected the price to be around the 10 mark!!!!! (hopeful or what?).

Would hot pans necessarily damage the tiles that were made for the purpose?

Not the trivets maybe but I wouldn't risk putting a hot pan onto an expensive piece of wall-art that's for sure!

No apparently the tile can go into the hottest ovens, taken out ,placed on the iron grid thingy ,then the food is placed on top , I would'nt , but obviously our ancient ancestors in the 1960's did, strange creatures ( i bet they had long hair and beards as well ) Laughter Laughter Laughter

Hi All
I think this discussion is psychologically quite interesting. As someone who is ancient and has used their beautiful 60s and 70s pottery for the purpose they were intended I think the observation someone made I now paraphrase - that now pounds are seen instead of purpose. So much pottery of the time was made so very well especially Poole Pottery. I see and handle my lovely stuff every day. Of course some gets damaged but I also drop "special" pieces when I am dusting etc....

I thought I would post another piece of every day Porches made in Portugal in 1977 Big Ed. When I bought it it had a plate hanger on it - doing damage actually. Removed and now in and out the oven with no probs.

All the best
Susie
