Cornish Blue is a unique part of British tableware history – a truly timeless design icon that fits the modern world just as well as it fitted the world of our great grandparents. The colour scheme resembles the blue of the Atlantic and the white of the Cornish clouds and waves breaking on the shore. Cornish Blue has always been highly collectable and its continued growth has seen the range expand to reflect modern styles, with both old and new ware eagerly sought by collectors worldwide.
T.G. Green was founded by Thomas Goodwin Green back in 1864. Rumour has it that he bought up an existing pottery factory while he was on his honeymoon with his new wife. The appearance of those familiar blue and white stripes in children’s books, adverts, fashion magazines, collector’s websites and homes all over the world is testament to Cornishware’s timeless design and enduring popularity. From plates to cups to storage jars, Cornishware was such a roaring success that it soon became a household name.
