It is so unusual to find excellent quality Beryl, as these sets of utility china were put to good use for many, many years during and after the war, when manufacturers were limited as to what they could supply to the UK market. Woodsware was so hardy that even after the period of rationing and hardship, it was still going strong and being used in households up and down the country.
This is a great set, and well worth snapping up to complete or begin your Woods Beryl collection. Do look out for other Beryl ware in the yay retro! shop including cake plates, serving plates, salt & pepper pots and jugs.
