Cornishware sugar shaker with screw lid and lettered 'sugar', in classic blue and white stripe, by T G Green - as illustrated in an early catalogue.

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.
