This is the lovely 1970's coffee set I picked up at auction on Monday. This and the blue glass bowl from yesterday looks like the lot for this week. The setting is by Wood & Sons, Burslem, (England 1865-1995)
Wood & Sons and its numerous subsidiaries was quite a large organisation producing good quality pottery for the domestic and hotel markets. Charlotte Rhead and Frederick Rhead played a significant role there in the early 20th Century, and Susie Cooper the owner of one of its subsidiaries, where she designed patterns on the "blanks" produced by Wood & Sons for her own line.
This pattern is called "Inca", from the 1970's - I haven't been able to locate a designer for it as yet. I love the organic shapes and elegant flourishes of the pieces as well as that wonderful repeat pattern. There is another range with the same shapes but in an olive green called "Lima" from the same era.
You can find an interesting and consise history of the company HERE,
