This picnic set is a delightful mottled orangey-brown colour. Bartone specialised in producing picnic ware, often with this mottley shading, and the pieces all have catalogued numbers cast on the underside. The large plates are Cat No B164, the small plates B169, the cups are B166 and the saucers B170.
Just look at those funky 40s handles! Fantastic. Two of the plates have a small patch of discolouration to the underside, but the set is in remarkable condition for its vintage. This set would make for a great retro picnic!
