We have often drawn attention to Maling's exuberant Art Deco pieces from the 1930s. In tandem with this trend was a taste for subtly understated designs. As ever, Maling provided what different customers wanted.
The coffee can looks like it could be a Susie Cooper design for Gray's pottery - but we assure you it's Maling. The tureen is in the "Ruche Band" pattern devised by Lucien George Boullemier who worked alongside his father, Lucien Emile, in the 30s. (For more Boullemier history see newsletter 29.)
