Looking to update your tea service? While we’re all for stockpiling vintage crockery to showcase our favorite fondant fancies on, the good people at East London emporium Luna & Curious are showing us an entirely new way to celebrate tea time. In the form of artist Grace Wilson for welovekarou’s Alley Cat plates.
Each cat comes with a name and a backstory. Apparently Francois is a hard-bitten detective who is secretly in love with Betty the librarian (the one with the glasses; do keep up) who has a brother called The Kid who is getting in trouble down at the Cat Whisker’s Saloon. Okay, a little far-fetched for ceramic plates you’re going to eat cake off, but these did bring a smile to our face. What do you think? Up for swapping out your mismatched china?
Alley Cat Plates by welovekarou, £20 each, available at Luna & Curious.
