Unusual and rarely seen Cornishware plate and cover, sold as a cheese dish, in classic blue and white stripe, by T G Green, as listed in the 1958 catalogue. A very attractive and practical piece.

Cornishware was first produced in 1924, created by using a lathe-turning technique that scraped blue slip away from the ceramic to reveal white bands of clay beneath. Those stripes reminded an employee of the blue skies and white-crested waves of Cornwall – which is how Cornishware got its name. In the 1960s Cornishware’s look was updated by Judith Onions and the restyled range was embraced as warmly as the originals.
