Cornishware: The Seaside Classic

June 14, 2013

“Like cricket, the Wellington boot, or the Mini, Cornishware is a source of pride and even passion at home and a symbol of great Britishness abroad,” according to T.G. Green & Co. “Its history, however, has not been without its ups and downs.”

T.G. Green & Co. first produced Cornishware in the 1920s in Derbyshire (the pottery is named for the blue sky and white-crested waves of Cornwall), a county famed for its pottery. Despite its popularity, the pottery closed in 2007 when the company found it impossible to compete in the modern market. Fortunately, lifelong admirers Charles Rickards and Paul Burston teamed up with designer and branding consultant Perry Haydn Taylor to rescue the company and reintroduce the distinctive English classic line of banded pottery. Today, the pottery can be ordered directly from T.G. Green & Co.
