Cornishware have been a kitchenware favourite since 1926. Their iconic blue and white stripe designs have graced pottery featured in adverts, magazines and homes across the world.
The Cornishware collection includes teapots, mugs, plates, jars, cake stands and egg cups; some of which can be personalised.
“T.G.Green began producing its famous kitchenware in Church Gresley, Derbyshire – a county famous for its pottery – using a nifty lathe-turning technique that scraped blue slip away from its beautiful ceramics to reveal white bands of clay beneath. Those stripes reminded an employee of the blue skies and white-crested waves of Cornwall, which is how Cornishware got its name.
All authentic Cornishware bears our shieldmark, so you’ll always know when you’ve got the real deal.”
The timeless and iconic design of Cornishware makes them highly collectable. The designs were firstly updated in the 1960’s by designer Judith Onions. The new designs alongside the original designs added to Cornishware’s success.
When the producers of Cornishware were forced to close their Victorian pottery workshop in 2007, they were rescued and are now continuing to sell their British classic pottery.
