Berit Ternell – Fleur, T.G. Green
Berit Ternell “Fleur”, T G Green
This design really stood out to me, and I was surprised to see a T.G. Green backstamp on the back as it looked so Scandinavian in style when I came across it at an auction some time ago (but didn’t purchase because of the poor condition of many of the pieces).
It turns out the design, labelled “Fleur” is by none other than Berit Ternell, the very well known and respected Swedish designer. She was commissioned by T G Green in 1961 to design a twist on “Cornishware” along with Judith Onions. In addition to re-designing some of the Cornishware forms, Berit Ternell came up with this very Scandinavian looking and popular design called “Fleur”. It was a full oven to table and kitchen range.
We see so much of T G Green’s “Cornishware” it is easy to forget that dozens of other designs were produced by this iconic British pottery. There is a comprehensive visual catalogue of most of the T G Green designs on Pinterest here.
