Crockery, Cancer Research shop, Greenford Broadway


This looks like part of a tea set dating from the 1930’s, more conventional and classic in design than the eye catching Art Deco crockery that sometimes turns up in charity shops or at car boot sales. I always find these remnants of someone’s past a moving sight. Tea sets like this one were probably bought by couples when they first married and set up home together. They turn up in windows like this one following a house clearance because the property owner has died.
