Designer of iconic Homemaker tableware dies

Seeney, who later became Enid Kelsall, designed Homemaker in the mid-50s, and it is now regarded as a classic of its time. Most commonly in black and white, it depicted other ground-breaking furnishing items of the period, including an armchair by Robin Day and a sofa by Sigvard Bernadotte.

The range was produced by Ridgway Potteries in Stoke-on-Trent and sold cheaply in Woolworths from 1958 up until 1970. Pieces can now sell for as much as £100.

Seeney trained at Burslem School of Art and in the Spode Copeland design studio. She died of motor neurone disease.
