Mason Cash & Co, established in the 1800’s in the heart of England are the makers of fine earthenware mixing bowls and baking products.
The origins of the brand can be traced back to a pottery already established in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, the location being particularly successful due to the abundance of clay and coal – the raw materials required to make pottery.
The Church Gresley pottery was run by a string of Master Potters, the most memorable of whom was “Bossy” Mason, who took over towards the end of the 19th century. This is where the “Mason” part of the name originates from. The “Cash” is Tom Cash who acquired the company in 1901 and renamed the pottery Mason Cash & Co. The name remained when Cash’s son took over from 1941, and has now become a world renowned brand.
During the 1930’s and 1940’s Mason Cash extended their product line to include petware. In 2001, they purchased T.G Green and worked to revive that pottery’s Cornish Blue kitchenware line. In 2004, Mason Cash & Co was sold to The Tabletop Company, then forming The Tabletop Group. In 2007, The Rayware Group acquired the Mason Cash brand to continue its growth and development across its kitchenware and petware range.
Mason Cash is nowadays a name synonymous with domestic kitchenware, in particular the cane mixing bowl, which is considered a design classic. This bowl, like many of the Mason Cash products, sports the signature Mason Cash design of a white glazed interior and a cane exterior. The colouring comes from the natural colour of the Derbyshire area’s local clay and the range is known as “yellow ware” or “Meashamware”, despite the fact that it was not actually produced in the Leicestershire town of Measham. This traditional English design of the Mason Cash mixing bowl has hardly changed in over one hundred years, although the glaze used is now leadless to conform with Propostion 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. There are now nine sizes of mixing bowl available, ranging from 120mm to 350mm in diameter.
The traditional partner to the famous cane mixing bowl has always been the classic white pudding basin. Recognised worldwide, this piece of pottery is still used in the British Royal Household for plum and Christmas puddings! Today, the white pudding basin is available in seven sizes, ranging from 115mm to 220mm.
Mason Cash now offer a wide range of products from ovenware and baking ware to serving ware and storage solutions. Their designs have stood the test of time, the cane mixing bowl design having barely altered at all in over 100 years, although certain ranges have added a contemporary twist and incorporated additional colours and patterns.
