HERE in the real world is the ever-popular Cornish ware, and this book is a new edition published recently along with a grand opening by the ubiquitous Paul Atterbury of the T.G. Green Pottery Museum in the Cornishware Cafe in Hartley Wintney – www.cornishwarecafe.com.

As English as Agatha Christie, the Morris Minor, village cricket and what used to be breakfast, is a kitchen full – too full, some say – of the blue-banded Cornish ware, so named by T.G.’s South of England rep, who saw it in the colours of Cornwall: skies and white-topped waves. Derbyshire-made since 1926 by T.G. Green & Company, of Gresley Green, a traditional domestic ware pottery, perhaps the most familiar and the most popular has been the black lettered kitchen and table wares. This book concentrated on Cornish ware when it was first published in 1996 and the new edition includes many of T.G. Green’s other wares, including the cream and green Streamline and the blue and white spotted Domino ware.
