Sabrina Ware was first introduced in 1894 and ran through to the mid-1930’s. A beautiful, subtle decoration caused by the effects of metallic salts, the exact final effect could not be controlled and this was considered part of its charm. During the biscuit firing the salts were found to crystallise producing random effects and luminous clouding. The final result being affected by the condition of the clay, density of atmosphere and temperature in the kiln and gases generated during the firing, every piece of Sabrina ware was unique and it was impossible to duplicate effects. Sabrina ware with its flowing blues and greens was named after Sabrina the Goddess of the River Severn.
