I picked up this little bowl from a local charity shop a while back.
The label is still on the bottom – 69p.
I had to look up the pattern when I got home.
It is Topic from the Studio range by J&G Meakin and dates from 1967.
I own a large but ugly plastic caddy that I use to store most of my sewing threads in (it was my mum’s; it is an unpleasant shade of dark beige and therefore I hide it away) but I use this little bowl to keep a few sewing threads to hand.
It stops them rolling about and disappearing under mounds of fabric.
As I am already over-endowed in the china department, I haven’t collected any more Topic.
But it is certainly nice enough to covet.
