J&G Meakin Topic Teapot and more for sale at yay retro!
Right now yay retro! have a lovely teapot in stock in J&G Meakin's 'Topic' pattern, this is causing quite a stir on the website, with many people taking a look every hour! It's a very pretty, yet also funky teapot. Designed in 1967 by Alan Rogers, it has large blue flowers and green leaves.
According to the Pottery Gazette in 1967, J&G Meakin's Studio pottery designs:
"...brought a modern and graphic approach to bear on the basic theme of the English Countryside thus producing a marriage between flora and Carnaby Street."
These patterns did so well because they sat between traditional and modern designs, meaning they captured a wider sector of the market. Alongside the teapot, we have matching jug and sugar bowl and a large serving bowl. If you wish to buy several of these items, we will refund any postage not required and pack them safely together for you.
