Well, one idea anyway. Why not treat your loved one to some Cornishware this Valentines?
Cornishware originally had blue and white bands and those colours influenced the banner at the top of this blog. Shortly after moving away from Cornwall, whilst visiting back home I was straight down to Trago Mills to get some household goods as now I had to look after myself. So, down in the aisles of Trago with various things in my basket I have probably never used I stumbled on some Cornishware. It was all seconds but suited a young bachelor like myself. So I picked up 2 mugs, my parents gave me sugar, tea and coffee jars that Christmas and my collection has grown ever since. The mug collection grew, a couple have bitten the dust, one of the survivors is sporting a chip and the other a large crack that if you left it for long enough all your tea would probably drain away. So they are now in semi retirement, and are just used when the dishwasher is full of our other mugs.
Cornishware is made by T. G Green and the blue and white striped design started production in the 1920 with many households having some Cornishware in their cupboards. Now the old stuff is quite collectible but T.G Green is having a bit of a revival and becoming increasingly popular and trendy! It is said that an employee of T G Green said the blue and white banding reminded them of the blue sky and white crested waves of Cornwall.
So treat your loved one (and yourself) to a pair of Cornishware mugs this Valentines – Now available in Red and White!
Past Valentines day as you read this? Doesn’t matter Cornishware makes a great gift any day of the year!
