Articles of daily use - #8 Olio tableware by Barber & Osgerby for Royal Doulton
Available from this month Barber and Osgerby's new Olio tableware collection for Royal Doulton is part of a series of collaborations with artists and designers commissioned to mark the brand's 200th anniversary.
The name 'Olio' meaning 'a miscellaneous collection of things' reflects the designers' intention that the individual pieces should be mismatched but work harmoniously together.
The collection includes cutlery, platters and chopping boards, alongside jugs, bowls, plates, mugs and teapots in soft neutrals, terracotta, black and white.
The designs are distinctive but at the same time will sit comfortably alongside existing pieces in the home.
