Big Metal Tree Porcelain Plate

$39.00

Ships in 2-3 weeks

In the 1950s and 1960s most Australian homes had a Hills Hoist. The idea was first dreamt up in 1895 but was designed in 1925 and only started being sold by Lance Hill in 1947, who built them in his backyard. 

It became popular in the 1960s during the housing boom after the Second World War and families have been using this big metal tree for drying clothes since and is considered an icon of Australian suburbia.

Skimming Stones porcelain plates are inspired by and designed in Melbourne and made by Kihara in Japan using techniques that have been in use for 400 years! That's a long heritage, these are master craftspeople. 

Dimensions (mm): 150d
