Carlton Ware: A Colourful Collectible

These vibrant collectibles are as charming today as they were when they were first introduced.

Origin

The company Carlton Ware was formed in 1890 due to a partnership between J.F. Wiltshaw and J.A. Robinson. The company changed ownership several times during its century-old life. Today it is well known all over the world. Carlton Ware introduced this earthenware line of floral embossed patterns in the 1930's.

Patterns were produced in either a green or yellow background and featured a range of floral patterns including: Fox Glove, Apple Blossom, Water Lily, Buttercup and Poppy.

Appeal

The vivid colours and floral patterns make this line of Carlton Ware as appealing today as it was in the 1930's. This sturdy earthenware is used today for display and serving. Teapots, cream and sugars, tea cups, saucers, salt and peppers, toast racks, jam pots and a variety of serving pieces can still be found.

Quirky Fact

The rather confusing and wordy mark on this earthenware often appears as "Carlton Ware Made in England Trade Mark Registered Australian Design Registration Applied For". This is for good reason. By the 1930's, Carlton Ware had become a target of good quality imitations coming from Japan. Priced lower than the originals, it became a problem for the company. Carlton Ware discovered a clause in the South East Asia Treaty Organization with respect to trade between Australia and Japan. The treaty stated the Japan could not copy designs that were registered in Australia.

Shopping

They were moderately priced and quite popular in their day. Today it can be found at flea markets, antique shops, garage sales and on Ebay. Prices can range from a few dollars to much more depending upon the pattern, shape, size and condition of the piece.
