Lost and found plate

So, last year I bought this very interesting plate on Ebay, I was skeptical that it was Edith Heath’s work, but the seller had a good story on the estate it came from and it sounded like it did likely have a connection to Edith, plus I liked the way it looked, so I went ahead and bought it. The seller (who has a wonderful webstore) just wrote me an email and included images of this brochure from 1943 that he just found, so this is before Heath Ceramics was formed in 1948. It does look a lot like the plate in the brochure, but check out the cup! It looks kind of 1940’s tiki inspired. Who knew, now that’s not very bauhaus, but I’d love to see one in person!
