Beryl Ware from Woods is a design classic from the forties. This simple mint green utility earthenware was popular in church halls and schools up and down the country as well as homes.

Wartime shortages decried that design should be simple and use as few resources as possible. So the clean lines of Beryl Ware are only broken up by ribbed bands that give it is distinctive feel. But look closely as you will see little flourishes on the handles and some jugs and coffee pots that have more than a nod to art deco.

The range was very comprehensive, with cups and saucers being produced in large tea size, coffee and espresso. Plates were produced for lunch, dinner, salads, tea and sides. Coffee and tea pots came in different sizes and were complemented by jugs, sugar bowls and serving plates.

Many of the plates and bowls we have in stock at the moment are completely unused, having been discovered tucked away in old village and church halls around the country.

Occasionally we are able to source some rare pieces: Hot Water pots, preserve jars, muffin dishes, salt and peppers and squat cream jugs.

Woods also produced two rarer colourways: Iris and Jasmine
