About Blue Domino Ware
T.G.Green, the company behind Cornishware of Church Gresley, first produced a polka dot pattern in 1933 and began promoting the Blue Domino range in spring 1934. Although a number of colours have been produced over the years (yellow, red, black, green and baby blue), the rich dark blue has been the staple of the range. It was at its most popular in the 1950's and 60's, matching the style trends of the era. The range changed in 1960 and a new (Gayday) shape was issued to match the current Cornishware shapes. Our research indicates that the new designs also featured white handles. You can distinguish pre and post 1960 versions by looking at the back stamp. Pre-1960 the dots on the dice are not filled in, post 1960 they are solid black.
Blue Domino ware was withdrawn in 1966, and although there was a brief re-issue in 1993, this did not prove to be successful. At Moody Mabel we avidly collect Blue Domino Ware and are most happy to help you build your collection.
