Christmas Wish List No.1: Ridgway Homemaker Cake Stand

Ridgway Homemaker Cake Stand

Designed between 1956-57 by Enid Seeney, it was originally mass produced for sale by Woolworth’s throughout the UK.  The pattern features a Robin Day armchair (1952),  a Sigvard Bernadotte sofa and a sideboard resembling one by Bernard Russell (info taken from

The 'Homemaker' print

I love this print and cannot believe that it used to be sold through Woolies!  RIP Woolies – you’ve clearly given us much more than I ever realised…  I would love any of the ‘Homemaker’ print pieces, but my absolute favourite is the cake stand. I’m not a huge cake baker, but I have been known to make a few cupcakes and bits and bobs of fudge. Imagine how beautiful they would look displayed on a cake stand such as this?  Also, how fantastic it would look in the 50s themed kitchen I have in mind if we get our offer accepted on the new house…
