About this product
Hornsea Bird Shaped Dish/Trinket tray/Ornament. Gift Boxed in matching design box. Hornsea Design Director, John Clappison, originally drew this fantastic bird for a range of ceramic dishes, produced in the 1960's. Magpie have redrawn this super cute bird from the original illustrations archived in the Hornsea Museum and created new ceramic moulds for small and large dishes, glazing them using authentic Hornsea colours of the period. Made from Stoneware and hand glazed. Also both sizes can stand up as a display piece. HAND WASH ONLY Hornsea Potteries was founded in 1949 by brothers Colin and Desmond Rawson. This quintessentially British brand made ground breaking designs all through the following decades until its final closure in 2000. The Hornsea legacy remains an important inspiration to many illustrators and artists today. With full access to the archives at the Hornsea Museum, this is the first range of products re-designed and released under official licence by Magpie.
