Ravilious on the Train (again)

Here are two pieces from a Wedgwood Travel pattern dinner service, designed by the British artist Eric Ravilious. They were first made during the 1930s.

Ravilious was an artist who worked in watercolour and as a wood engraver. These plates are basically wood engravings printed onto china and with colour added.

The image of the train was already a bit self-consciously retro when Ravilious designed them. Nowadays, they seem especially charming.
