Winning the prize for the longest product title this week (and perhaps year) is the latest design from People Will Always Need Plates. “British Industry is dead, long live British industry” is a small collection comprising of large platters and small trinket dishes.
The designs commemorate traditional British industries such as coal-mining and shipbuilding, which have long since been in decline. However, the collection is not intended to be as depressing as that sounds, as it also celebrates the resurgence of the traditional pottery industry and uses British company Caverswall China to produce these limited edition pieces. The platters measure 34cm and cost £115, whilst the trinket dishes measure 10cm and cost £25, both limited to 50 editions.
