Kirkham Sugar Bowl

50ssugarbowl

The 50s might not be to everyones taste as we think back in shock and horror of abstract, geometric patterns in primary colours, new materials – PVC, fibreglass, rubber, melamine, vinyl and plastics.

This beautiful hand painted sugar bowl by Kirkham is a classic example.  Kirkham pottery was set up in Stoke on Trent before being merged with Portmeirion.

A happy find on Spitalsfield Antique Market in London for £5. The market is held every Thursday and despite it’s top location it’s still bargain territory.
