Product description

Midwinter has now become one of the foremost collectables from the 1950s and is set to follow the path of Clarice Cliff and Susie Cooper pottery in both popularity and price. In the last ten years 1950s design has been elevated from obscurity and examples of furniture, fabric and pottery are on display in museums and galleries across the world. Examples of Midwinter pottery have become familiar 'retro' images as seen on tv and in the many books on the period - the optimistic polka dot pattern Red Domino and the stylish zebra-stripe Zambesi are the two more obvious examples. The designers from that period are very well known, Jessie Tait, Midwinter's in-house designer for twenty eight years, Sir Hugh Casson, Sir Peter Scott and the design guru himself - Sir Terence Conran. Midwinter is much more than just the 1950s though - in the 1960s they produced a ground-breaking bestseller in the Fine range designed by David Queensberry. Roy Midwinter designed the quintessential 1970s Stonehenge range and Eve Midwinter the pastel 1980s Style range. The most memorable image from these later years is the blue and green Spanish Garden, a paisley inspired bestseller still much used in our homes today. This new edition of the Midwinter 'bible' has many new illustrations including previously unseen patterns in colour, extended text and a comprehensive shape and pattern guide. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in twentieth century design history.
