What's for sale?
This is a rare oil and vinegar set by Price & Kensington potteries, hand-decorated in their charming, spongeware, blue sheep design.
Spongeware decoration is applied by hand, using shaped pieces of sponge. This discontinued range included a large variety of kitchen and tableware, including teapots, mugs, plates and various serving dishes. This is quite a rare item and hard to find.
