Using graphic images to brighten up dull, utilitarian kitchens was very popular in the 1950s (think Homemaker by Enid Seeney) and Long Line by Bristol Pottery is one of the lesser spotted designs that was both functional and decorative, winning the Good Housekeeping magazine's seal of approval in 1957. Strong graphic engraved images of cutlery reminiscent of Fornasetti decorated this very functional collection which included teapot, coffeepot and cruet set, but it's the range's storage jars that are the most sought after. The majority have bright blue lids but the rare examples, like these two, sport  bright primary-colour lids in yellow and red.
