Objects of Desire: Cornishware & Falcon Enamelware

April 29, 2013 , In: Kitchenware , With: 2 Comments

I’m a wee bit of an anglophile, having lived in London for a few years and as a big lover of all things British.  I always loved the look of traditional British kitchenware and especially Cornishware and Falcon Enamelware (although I am sure I am going to get some comment that enamelware is in fact German or something…)

Cornishware was first produced by T.G. Green in the 1920’s and was so named because the distinctive blue reminded an employee of the sky and white-crested waves of Cornwall.  It certainly is pricey, so perhaps the whole collection is out of the picture (and frankly – that’s a bit too ‘matchy’ for my taste), but a few items at a rustic country chalet?  Yes, please.




As for the enamelware, I know there are several brands, but this Falcon Enamelware just takes the cake doesn’t it.  I don’t know why enamelware went so out of fashion – I suppose because it chips – but it is just so pretty.  Even if it does chip, you can still use it and it just gives it a more vintage appeal in my opinion.  Around since the 1920’s, I think it’s timeless, and gorgeous.

    So where can one buy Cornishware in Montreal?

      I don’t think it’s sold anywhere in Montreal but would be happy for someone to prove me wrong. I’m lucky to have family in England, so could have it hand delivered if I ever felt I needed to add it to my collection. You might want to check online too.
