Cornishware are kindly giving away a lovely red teapot, two mugs and a tea storage jar. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re also offering you 15% off when you quote CLIPPER15 at the checkout of their online shop!

T.G.Green began producing its famous kitchenware in Church Gresley, Derbyshire – a county famous for its pottery – using a nifty lathe-turning technique that scraped blue slip away from its beautiful ceramics 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!
