This is a classic piece of early plastics design and dates from the 1930's or 40's. It is an early example made by Streetly Manufacturing as part of their Beetleware range which predates the later melamine versions.

Lovely styling with the salt, pepper and mustard pots sitting in a faux cane basket. The base of the stand is a mottled painted hardboard with plastic piping handles. The 'cane' is actually plastic but it is quite convincing and is very typical of the time.

This set is in good condition and still has the mustard spooon which is often missing.

Price £20.00. UK postage & packing £3.30.
