Conran cups and London tray


I have posted these cups and saucers before, but they deserve another post. I never tire of this pattern and I was just thinking I should try harder to collect more pieces... (As if I have the space for it). It's Nature Study, Stylecraft by Midwinter, Staffordshire and the designer is Terence Conran. I think it's dating back to 1955.

The London tray in the background is designed by Maria Holmer Dahlgren for Metagram Art. I purchased it from the museum shop at Tate Modern. (I wanted to buy the Stockholm tray when I was there last summer, but I think this one is more for me, as I have a connection to London.) It is a wonderful and clever design, managing to look timeless.
