I am selling my gorgeous c1950's Carlton Ware "Windswept" trio plus the matching cream jug.

All in pristine condition without chips, scratches or crazing the colour is a delightful deep cream - darker than the photos.

The cup measures 7.5 cm tall and 7 cm in diameter across the mouth. The saucer 14 cm across, the plate 18 cm across and the jug 8 cm from the base to the top of the lip. A really unusual but delightful shaped set.

I am told that "Windswept" is an Australian design although it is not marked as such. Possibly designed before the "Australian Design' trade mark was adopted.

By the mid 1930’s the Japanese had become masters of copying good quality wares and Carlton Ware became a target.

Prices for the imitations were much lower than the originals they copied, which caused much concern.

However the Directors discovered a clause in the South East Asia Treaty Organisation (SEATO) between Australia and Japan where designs registered in Australia could not be copied by the Japanese. They quickly took advantage of this by registering a large number of patterns in Australia.

This explains the “Registered Australian Design" backstamp on many of their patterns.

This is a fabulous set to add to your collection or perhaps start a new collection.
