- Curator's comments
- For the Campden range, see L. Jackson, 'The New look. Design in the Fifties', London 1991, p. 139. The range won a Design Centre Award in 1958. Welch's stainless steel designs for Old Hall were mostly intended for use in the catering industry, and this explains the identical coffee and hot milk jugs with opposing handles, to enable both liquids to be poured together when serving.
