One of the most sought-after ranges of tableware once sold at Woolworth’s at two and a halfpence a piece.

Designed in 1957 by Enid Seeney for the Ridgway Potteries (Stoke-on Trent), the ‘Homemaker’ range, decorated with black stylised images of household items, has now become one of the most collectible dinner sets. With its abstract black and white design so typical for the era, it’s also one of the most beautiful Fifties sets around.

Enid Seeney was a student at Burslem School of Art when she joined Booth & Colcloughs – part of Ridgway Potterries back then – in 1951 and created the Homemaker design: a pattern featuring an eclectic mix of furniture and other household objects such as a carving knife and fork or a plant pot. Yet each of the items is typical for Fifties design, from the kidney table to wooden sideboard.
