I can understand the nomenclature with the above Desert Scene pattern but calling this one "Cuban Fantasy" had me scratching my etymologicals,
(not a pretty sight)

I cannot, 'til the heat death of the universe, imagine myself trusting anyone, ON THE PLANET, to pour gravy into the gravy jug, let alone eat dinner from one of the plates of this set. There would have to be foam rubber knives and forks for my blood pressure not to bring the repast to a messy and premature end.

I could fit a small bit of cake on here with a biscuit and a canape and perhaps one chip just to tick all the "correct" food groups.
( No room for salad, though)

It actually has "243 TV" impressed into the bottom of the plate/saucer so who am I to argue about usage?

A lovely Midwinter Nature Study Dinner service designed by a young Sir Terence Conran in 1955, and to make it even rarer the almost mythical metal Tureen stands an extremely rare optional extra for this pattern.Midwinter (Staffordshire) - Page 6 <a href=Midwinter (Staffordshire) - Page 6 235-201411299218_original2_zps35892bb8" />

Well I always think you can not have enough of a good thing , but I think collecting has turned back into obsession for me, I think I have about 250 pieces plus of Nature Study , time to trim down.
But at the moment it is a buyers rather than sellers market and still seems to be falling, and I just cant let these iconic 50's dinner tea and coffee sets go by with out buying them , hopefully the markets will turn again and be back to where they were a few years ago which will be about 4 times the prices as they are today.

The Portobello shape of which range your teapot is part of doesn't appear to have been very successful, as it isn't commonly seen. Brought out in 1967 and continued into the early 1970s.

Cheers :) It's at the local charity shop but didn't look interesting enough to warrant the price tag

It wasn't a big selling pattern at the height of Midwinter's popularity because, although hand-painted, the colours are rather dull.

Midwinter 'Lorna Doone' hors d'oeuvre chintz tray. Seems to be a scarce shape for this pattern, unless i'm just looking in all the wrong places.
