Welcome to Carlton Ware World

Announcements & recent additions

At the end of 2023, for technical reasons, as well as constraints on my time, I took this website down after running it for 15 years. Due to the many kind comments about how it would be missed, I have reconsidered my action and have reinstated most of the site.

I will expand the popular parts of the site and make additions such as those on the Types of Ware page, which now includes more categories and also shows a wide range of backstamps.

With the exception of the Carlton Ware World Facebook Group that I also run, much of the information I provide on this site will not be found elsewhere on the Internet (unless copied and pasted from here) or in the many publications on Carlton Ware.

The relaunch heralds the inclusion of " Barb's Borders", details below.

Note : Some pages are not available but will be reinstated when I have time.
