Description

Details

Originally founded in Hunslet, a village just outside Leeds, around 1756, Leeds Pottery was owned by members of two families, both called Green, who were then joined by a Lancashire businessman, William Hartley, giving the company the name under which it became famous. Hartley Greens & Co. rapid expansion followed and by 1790, the Pottery products were exported throughout Europe and as far afield as Russia and America. Hartley Greens & Co produced several kinds of pottery but was particularly famous for its Creamware, a new type of earthenware made from white Cornish clay combined with a translucent glaze to produce its characteristic pale cream color. Creamware was perfect for making the elegant and highly decorative tableware in demand in the Georgian age. The commercial success and outstanding quality of the Leeds product meant that in time all Creamware came to be popularly known as Leedsware.

Gorgeous- More Please !
I collect antique white ironstone & modern white ceramic pieces- I have cabinets full & my favorites are the 4 pieces of Hunslet Ware I've recently purchased.
The most graceful forms I've seen-truly. I'm only sad that this company doesn't make a wider variety of pieces- they would do divine footed soup tureens I'm sure.
They are expensive, but the finest things are.

Hunslet jug
Perfect: looks, quality-everything I expected.Simple yet elegant and the exquisite cream color and "shine" you only get from English creamware. 4 stars on value because they are, after all, not your everyday-dinnerware priced pieces and smaller than same price pieces from other English pottery brands. But worth the money just for the looks.
