T. G. Green Mixing Bowl

This iconic item sits in many a kitchen cupboard and has been a part of the baking of thousands, if not millions of cakes since the 1930s. The local potteries of South Derbyshire at one point produced over 90% of Britain's mixing bowls. The distinctive yellow colour is the natural colour of the local clay once fired. This is due to the clay's high iron levels. The clay's robust composition is also why it makes such hard wearing bowls which are passed down for generations of baking!
