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.

Yes 1950s Midwinter. Looks like a Manx cat, not a model I recall seeing before.
Possibly designed by Nancy Great-Rex, in the 1940s.

I think DD is most likely to be correct but she did design animals from the mid 1930s and it might be pre-War. The most famous were Larry the Lamb and Peggy the Calf. I have seen a bear but not this cat before.

I don’t know their pattern names but the plant is a Trillium.

Not shown in the book, no pattern called Trillium, also can't match a description,
so it may be just one of those un-named unknows.

It might have been just one of a set of tableware with different plants on each plate

There were a few patterns with mainly floral open-stock transfers.

25 years ago I had a significant involvement in selling Midwinter, which was then highly collectable. These later realistic flower patterns where not really of interest back then and I don't recall seeing this pattern before and so can't help with the name.

DD is correct in what he says and it could be likely. In their day, c1963 onwards, they were popular with the buying public when new and so it is likely that variations were produced by Midwinter to cater for the demand.

I think this could be a trial or a special order. I can't see it in the book.
Each motif looks slightly different, as though they are hand-decorated.
Standard Fashion shape items dated 1964, but unusual to have that mix of colours,
and I've never seen gilding like that on any fashion shape before.

It's what they did often in the 1960s at Midwinter, i.e. added incongruous old fashion decoration to a classic 1950s shape.

I'm sorry but that looks like a blank teaset that has been painted over by an amateur. The paint will likely be over the glaze.

Hi!Midwinter Pottery - Page 7 20200214
Midwinter Pottery - Page 7 20200215
Midwinter Pottery - Page 7 20200213


I came across this lovely set of tea cups, saucers and small plates in a charity shop today.. I paid a grand total of £1 for the whole set! I just loved them.. didnt even know the make of them when i bought them- just loved them so bought them! Anyway! I love to research my little finds.. but I cant find anything the same when trying to find anything about them. I have come across the marks so know roughly when they were made but nothing else. The stamp appears to be from between 1946 and 1953 I think? Any big Midwinter fans/collectors who might know any more information or exact age or Pattern etc? I just love the combination of the flowers and the stripes! Very pleased with my find today none the less! Laughter
Thanks in advance!

This is the Hudson shape. It may not have had a recorded name as such.
The same centre transfer (probably open stock) was used on "Petula", a stylecraft
shape range from 1953.

Collectors of midwinter tableware tend only to be interested in the later shapes

A Stylecraft double plate cake stand with the chintz 'Rand' print. I've spent all of the last ten minutes(!) on Google looking for the name but can't find a single mention so it must be ultra rare. Possibly.

No, not in the book.
I'm wondering if "RAND" is a third party company simply using a Midwinter blank.
Why would they put Made in England again?
though Midwinter did do a couple of chintz patterns

Indeed, Brama is one, isn't it and there's the one that includes a bird. This stand came with the correct looped handle too, not that much can be read into that.

You mean "Lorna Doone".
It could also just be a special order for a company/retailer/wholesaler.

Back in the 1990s when I had a unit in Alfie's and specialised in Midwinter, a female customer, who knew Hugh Casson, used to come in and buy pieces to give him as Birthday/Christmas presents.
