To celebrate the Laura Knight exhibition which has just opened in Milton Keynes (it's on until 20 February 2022) this week we celebrate – a 1934 Laura Knight dinner service. It's at Manchester Art Gallery, and temporarily in Milton Keynes, and here is some of it in its full glory. Every piece has a circus scene on it. The set is made up of twelve dinner plates, nine dessert plates, ten side plates, ten soup bowls, four oval serving plates, two lidded tureens and a lidded sauceboat.
