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!

Vintage Enamel Trays

I wonder if vintage enamel trays can be regarded more as an art form than a mere functional object.

I wonder if the artists of these beautiful designs were ever documented and celebrated.

I wonder who they were and what their inspirations were.

We just received a batch of these and they are truly inspirational. The smallest is about 30cm and the largest is 51cm (that’s half a metre across!)

At the bottom of the basin - a pair of flying geese
