Bringing back British Red

From the pillar box and the fire engine to the telephone booth and the classic Routemaster bus, Britain has a long and proud history of iconic red designs, many of which are admired and adored the world over. Following in this grand tradition, Cornishware, the quintessentially British table and kitchenware brand famed for its distinctive blue and white striped pottery, is set to bring back a much-loved iconic red design of its own: Cornishware Red.

T.G. Green, who first produced Cornishware in the 1920s, experimented with a prototype range of banded red and white china back in the 1950s. The red colour proved a difficult one to reproduce to the proper depth and consistency and plans for a red range were dropped. The protoype red pieces became hugely prized by collectors the world over, with single items changing hands for breathtaking prices.

When the new owners of T.G. Green took the helm in 2007, they were determined to try their hand at what had by now become known as ‘the elusive’ red, a testament to the team’s commitment to restore the Cornishware brand to its former glory. Based on the much-lauded historical best sellers, all the pieces in today’s Red range are true to the Cornishware design principles of classic simplicity, quality and durability.

While the original production of Cornishware Red was limited to just a few items, the new range is available in all 50 designs, alongside the classic blue. Encompassing crockery classics such as plates, bowls, cups, saucers and teapots, the range also includes kitchen items such as storage jars, pudding basins, a selection of pouring and measuring jugs and even a pestle and mortar. Prices start at £10 and pieces are supplied in bespoke Cornishware boxes, making a great gift or collector’s piece. New Cornishware Red will be available from kitchen shops across the country.
