We’ve been lucky enough to have had a couple of these Dolly Days coffee sets since we’ve been trading. We picked up the first one in a charity shop in Bexhill-on-Sea about 8 years ago – before we even had a shop!

We’re saying a fond farewell to our gorgeous Stig Lindberg bowl in a few days. We bought it last year at auction and despite it being very tempting to keep hold of these items indefinitely, we have to make a living. So it’s up for sale!
It’s a stunning piece with blue band and black zig-zag design - hand decorated by Stig Lindberg for Gustavsberg of Sweden in the 1950s. Fully marked to the base with the artist’s distinctive markings.
We put most items on our own website, but we’ve decided to list this one on eBay. There are avid collectors of Scandinavian pottery from this era - and Stig Lindberg-designed examples in particular. It will reach a wide audience for collectors worldwide who are searching for him by name. If you’re a fellow fan, there’s still 4 days left of the auction.
We’ve enjoyed living with it for a while, but it’s just got a bid… so it looks like goodbye!
What makes that perfect coffee break?
Well designed machines to make it in…
Striking pots to serve it in…
Beautiful cups to drink it from…
And not forgetting… cosies to keep it warm!
