1960's Carlton Ware Flower Power Salt & Pepper Set

SOLD

These are great - so 1960's flower-power - here is a salt and pepper set from Carlton Ware in an unusual shape with flat multi-coloured flower shaped tops in yellow, orange, red, pink and purple.  They look brilliant on display and sit very well with other brightly coloured items from the same period.  We're not sure at the moment who designed them - it's possible they're by Vivienne Brennan but we've nothing concrete to go on other than the general style and colours used so this is a suggestion at the moment and not a positive attribution.  Marked to the bases with the Carlton Ware script backstamp saying 'Carlton Ware, Made in England' and still bearing their original white plastic stoppers.  Please see all photographs for alternative views and close-ups.
