I love enamel

By nature of its material alone, enamel is an old-fashioned material, before stainless steel and synthetic materials took over in the manufacture of kitchenware. Is it any wonder then that those who love vintage have a soft spot for enamel-ware too?

Here’s what we have, great for decor but don’t forget they can be used too!

Cooking pot



For the table

White bowl and mug with blue rim (sold separately)


Kid-size mugs


Small red pot with handle (for boiling milk?)


Also in store are enamel trays and floral mugs with lids. Come check them out 🙂

Enamel mugs

My first proper post done from the iPhone. Hope it goes well! Yes, I’m that low-tech! 🙂

These lovely enamel mugs with lids are in mint condition and have never been used. Love the lid, which has colour which fades towards the knob.
