I have posted 70s melamine ware previously- I am drawn to the colours and forms of these beautifully designed pieces. I collect two Australian manufacturers- Bessemer and Vogue. You might remember that Bessemer led the way, employing an industrial designer to design their tableware [see post, below] – then Vogue followed suit. ‘Vogue Australia’ is imprinted on the bottom of these jugs and sugar bowls, since the manufacturer name Vogue was also used in North America, at about the same time.
These jugs, cups and sugar bowls can be used as intended- melamine is a strong plastic resistant to scratching and these pieces are ‘as new’ – or they can form part of a funky 70s display. 70s melamine is now very collectible.
