The weeks seem to be flying by .... it's Dublin Flea time again this Sunday. One my recent finds on display will be this fantastic Alfred Meakin teaset from the 1950s with the brilliant pattern name "Gay Fantasy". Patterns and shapes found in nature where a big theme in the 50s (see Stig Lindberg ceramics) and the nice clean graphics and colour of this pattern are can be seen in the modern designs of Orla Kiely and Cath Kidston.

  1. I just found a full set of this in my local charity shop for a bargain £12! I have a few of his designs and love them.
