Stoneware and crockery

usual-shop-march-09-017Oops, I did it again; can’t turn down a nice bit of stoneware (each item 20p from various jumble sales this week). The pale yellow vase has a stamp reading ‘Gresley’ and ‘Made in England by JG Green and co’ – no idea. The buttercup yellow mug is only cheap chain-store but will be cheerful of a morning, and the orange bowl is a little Le Creuset oven-proof dish.

    I chanced upon this blog while researching some recent ‘finds’. Is XXX* behind it, I wondered? If so, drop us a line and we can swap notes…

    The yellow pot with the incised banding is T&G Green of Church Gresley – the company that made all that blue-banded or yellow-banded Cornishware kitchen crockery in the 1950s and 1960s.

    *Edited by Usual Shop for reasons of anonymity but yes, it was a positive identification.

      Nic! Good to hear from you. Am I really so easily identifiable? You still know me and my habits well… I’ll be in touch.
