T.G. Green (England) 'Easimix' Gripstand Mixing Bowl | Circa 1950s
T.G. Green was founded by Thomas Goodwin Green back in 1864. Rumour has it that he bought up an existing pottery factory while he was on his honeymoon with his new wife, Mary Tenniel.
One of the company’s most popular lines was always Cornishware, which was first produced in 1924. It was created 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.

One of the most well-known and iconic pieces to be produced by T.G. Green, the 'Easimix' Gripstand mixing bowl. Originally produced in and patented in 1906, it was produced up until 2007.
We're excited to be able to offer one from their collection, dating to the 1950s - which we've able to confirm via the backstamp.
This beauty features a lovely sky blue interior, with a white exterior finished in vertical stripes on the sides and a wave design along the rim.
It's in great to excellent vintage condition. It features no chips or cracks. There are some light utensil marks internally, as expected from usage, but overall lovely condition.
Measuring approx 13cm tall and 30cm diameter; these bowls are a wonderfully large size.
