Designed by Daisy Makeig-Jones and featuring a range of ancient symbols in its design. These include Celtic bosses, Cretan-style figures and even fylfots, now better known as swastikas. The design dates from 1923, before that ancient holy symbol had been adopted by the German Nazi party. The figures in the Cretan pattern are stylised and angular and gained the nickname ‘furnacemen’ on the factory floor while the design was in production. Each piece in the teaset has a form known as the Grecian Teas shape.
