Swinnertons Nestor Vellum ‘Moonglo’ dinner plates
made in England, c.1950s
I recently posted some Nestor Vellum ‘Moonglo’ cups & saucers and side plates– the Moonglo refers to the beautiful 50s colours, but what does Nestor Vellum refer to? Hellkatdesigns [a fantastic blog out of Melbourne] noted that Nestor was a mythological Greek sage- I figured out that vellum is parchment…but that’s as far as we’ve got.
So- here’s seven beautiful Moonglo plates to go with the cup & saucers and side plates. I absolutely love the colours. It’s mix ‘n’ match at its best.
For sale: $AUD75
I love these colours! They remind me of candy.
don’t they just? imagine eating off them- making everything taste good! puts today’s stark white minimalist plates to shame!
It really is such a pretty palette of colours!
yes…thanks hellkat. i fell for them instantly. they don’t make ’em like this anymore!
very cool. I love the colors too!
