70s realism

70s realism platesJapanese ‘realist’ plates
made in 1970s

These plates fall into the ‘so bad they are good’ category. The realistic depiction of a pie and three vegetables doesn’t get more prosaic – or more hilarious. These plates were made for the European market in the 70s and you can just imagine the creative process that occurred to produce such fine recreations of the Australian diet.

Pie and mash! Tomato slice. Prawn! Kinda sums up the 70s really.

  1. I remember when I was little we had some oval serving plates that had carrots and other foods in a border around the edge but they’d been in the dishwasher too many times and had really faded! I’d love to go to the seventies for a day – it strikes me as lots of fun!
