Trip Loot: Part 2 (Give Me Some Sugar)

You've seen the thrifts, the Brutalist Harlow Town Center, the Mid-Century Modern Christmas presents, and the collection of West German pottery brought home from the last of my semi-annual UK excursions, but there's still one last piece of trip loot to share.

Granted, it isn't anything mind-blowing, but this vintage ceramic sugar pot was my favorite antique mall purchase of the lot.

 I just love the typeface and simple, modern design.

The pot was originally a part of the Spectrum series (which covered a huge assortment of containers for tea and sugar to cheese and meat drippings) and produced in England by T. G. Green LTD., the same company that made the incredibly popular (and recently reintroduced) Cornishware.

So, we're all done with the tales of travel for now, but I'll be back soon with more MCM finds.

  1. That's a really cool container. I like the typeface too. It would be great to have a full set.
