Newsflash: your dinner table is nothing unless there’s a cabbage on it. No, not the superfood variety – the porcelain sort. This is more of a revived trend rather than a new one, with some collectable pieces discovered via various auctioneers dating back to the 16th century and selling for what you’d describe as ‘investment’ prices. Spode and Wedgwood made English majolica cabbages that were particularly popular in the mid 19th century and there are now various modern recreations of the cabbage plates, jugs and tureens at more palatable prices.
