There are times when you want crockery with a more traditional look, but that’s not too formal. That’s why we made the Olney collection, which includes pieces for both teatime and supper, and is both refined and down-to-earth at the same time. This bowl has a low, wide shape which makes it best for porridge and muesli or smaller portions of pasta and soup.
Our tableware is packed and sold in convenient sets online, and individually at our stores. So if you need more than 6 place-settings, or if something gets broken, you can make up the numbers easily without having to buy another whole set.
Stoneware, because it’s hardwearing, so you can put it in the dishwasher, and even the microwave, and not worry about it chipping easily. As fine as they are, these are pieces to live with day after day, not tiptoe around.
No two pieces in the Olney collection will be the same. That’s because we apply the dark brown thistle motif by hand using carved wooden blocks – the traditional block-printing technique. Pattern changes, varying shades, it’s what makes Olney feel more charming and tells you how it was crafted rather than manufactured.
There’s a whole lot of tradition behind Olney’s finish. From British spongeware – hand-stamped everyday pottery with its roots in the 18th century – to Chinese and Indian block printing. Just like both of these artisan processes, Olney’s got the same feeling of craft.
Our Olney collection is microwave and dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing for longer life.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
