Cornishware was first produced in 1926 by T. G. Green & Co. in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, England. In the decades years since, it has become a design classic. Nominated by the London Design Museum as one of the top 100 20th-century design icons and known around the world for its simple beauty and practicality. The distinctive blue and white banded pottery owes its name to an employee who said it reminded them of the blue sky and white-crested waves of Cornwall. Cornishware is finished by hand, just as it always has been, so there are natural variations in color and glaze – which we rather like. Great care has been taken to preserve the characteristics that made these English classics, but have also ensured that they can be used with dishwashers, microwaves and ovens. Designed for everyday use, Cornishware will take you from breakfast to dinner and beyond. Serve up a proper frothy Italian coffee. Set of 4 8-ounce Cups with Saucers.
