I love Orla Kiely designs [not that I actually own anything by OK] I think her simple leaf prints are so attractive
But long before OK put her leaves on coffee canisters and biscuit tins, Hornsea Pottery had a leaf design, called Charisma
It was around back in the 1970’s, when we chose Hornsea ‘Cornrose’ as our wedding present china. Here’s my casserole from back then
But recently, eagle-eyed Bob spotted a Charisma casserole in a charity shop. Same size and shape – so he bought it for £5!
As you can see, one is grey, and the other is beige – but I love them both. I think they are definitely OK!
I don’t make so many casserole once the weather gets warmer – but I may perhaps serve curry in one and rice in the other – or maybe remove the lids and use them to serve jacket potatoes and a salad.
