Bit of a Georges Briard obsession at the moment. Jascha Brojdo, his real name, designed housewares, notably glassware in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Because it was mass produced finding it isn't difficult, pieces come up all the time on ebay, or at local flea markets often for only a few dollars. I love this mid-century glass dish
Who could resist the gold pattern - so retro.
Then there's the ceramic kitchenware, which I think I like even more
Georges Briard Seashell Cheese Plate and Knife. Seashells, appropriate for The Cool House, no? Good thing as they are both mine courtesy of ebay.
