Creamware is a type of Earthenware, made from white Cornish clay, combined with a translucent glaze to produce its characteristic pale cream color. Creamware was perfect for making the elegant and highly decorative tableware in demand in the Georgian age. Although it was also made by many other companies, the commercial success and outstanding quality of the Leeds product meant that in time all Creamware came to be popularly known as “Leedsware”. This Creamware was made at Stoke on Trent, England by the Hartley Greens Company. The company has existed since 1770.
Classical Christmas is English Creamware made by Hartley Greens, specifically for Vaillancourt Folk Art. The entire line is designed by Judi Vaillancourt, but based upon antique shapes and themed specifically for the Holidays.
