I have posted before about Diana, a Marrickville [Sydney] pottery that produced from 1940 to 1975. I live very close to Marrickville, so became fascinated with this pottery and um…collected…a…bit…of it….. .. .. . .
These fantastic 50s ramekins are all in good condition – with the exception of the bottom square blue ramekin, which has two tiny nicks in its rim [zoom in on image, you’ll see them.] I love the way the ramekins, when stacked like this, resemble Daleks [the official nomenclature is ‘scroll ware’, but I can’t help thinking Dalek ware.]
The ramekins, that quintessential 50s soup accoutrement, came in either a square or round shape with scroll handle. Diana made sure that all the 50s colours were represented, and like the Martine Boyd ramekins [also below] started the trend towards multi-coloured dinnerware that could be bought piece by piece- rather than a patterned, unified set. Together with the condiment bowls, these ramekins would kick-start any Diana 50s collection. For sale: $AUD275
