Cornishware is made from Cornish clay, which is then hand-painted and finished with a glaze. The design was first created by scraping parts of the blue slip from the ceramics, revealing the white clay beneath.

Cornishware has always been made in England. Cornishware was originally made in Derbyshire, however since the factory closed, it has been made in Stoke-on-Trent and decorated in the West Country.
How old is Cornishware?
Cornishware was first produced in 1924, making it 98 years old! However, T.G Green & Co was founded in 1864 and they created other lines and ranges before creating Cornishware, which proved to be their most popular.
