Our style is difficult to characterise, but it is safe to say its eclectic! We aim to offer our customers a range of furniture and home ware that feels both personal and unique. We try to stock interesting and beautiful things, and are very keen on timeless qualities, the authentic and well made.
You will find anything from rustic tableware and vintage enamel to hand dyed French linens, utility & mid century furniture items and our original reupholstered vintage chairs. We are gradually adding to the range a collection of stylish and covetable artist & craft made home wares and decorative accessories.
Vintage Bakelite/ Bandalasta Ware Beaker
We have a massive soft spot for early plastics and vintage Bakelite at Homeward.
The variation of colours and patterns is what fascinates and the fact that each item is unique.
Plastic as a material revolutionized design and manufacture during the 1920s and 1930's. Nowadays we like to keep our plastic consumption vintage or recycled at Homeward!
Bandalasta is a trade name and these beakers would originally have been part of a picnic set. The marbling effect in browns, orange and cream are beautiful and entirely ramdom. We thought they made a nice pen pot for your desk.
