Extraordinary J&G Meakin Coffee Pot Collection!



Yesterday I got a wonderful email from Donna, a yay retro! customer...Back in 2012, she had bought some J&G Meakin Studio ware from me, little did I know that her purchase sparked the most wonderful collection of J&G Meakin Studio Coffee Pots!  Donna kindly sent me photos of her fantastic collection which amounts to 65 coffee pots and counting...  

In 1968, J&G Meakin took over Midwinter, whose 'Fine' shaped coffee pots had influenced their Studio Shape designs. The Studio Shape coffee pot has a very tall, sleek, ornamental shape with a long spout, which is very recognisable and ideal for display. The company had a huge variety of designs from classic 50s style roses, to 60s flower power patterns and 70s abstract mosaic style imagery, even plain coffee pots were created in the Studio shape. Donna's collection continues to grow and we just love her specially made shelving to house her display!

If you would like to find out more about J&G Meakin and the patterns they created, check out the yay retro! Retropedia page about J&G Meakin here.



Please note we are not looking to purchase J&G Meakin for the yay retro! shop at the moment, thanks.
