This British Colour Standard Espresso Cup in Cornflower, has to be one of our favourites. Made from white bone china, and gold embossed with the brand's logo, the espresso cup makes the perfect gift, as well as being a great addition to your existing British Colour Standard collection. The neighbours are sure to have mug envy.
The 1931, British Colour Council's Dictionary of Colour Standards was dusted off from the archives by Victoria Whitbread and Jackie Piper, and used as the inspiration behind their rather colourful brand, British Colour Standard©.
The pre-war Dictionary of Colour Standards was created by Robert Francis Wilson, to ensure that there was uniformity with the colour of items across the commonwealth, from uniforms, flags, postboxes & battleships. Many of the British Colour Standard's products names have been taken from Francis Wilson's Dictionary of Colour Standards, including Battleship Grey, Peacock Green, Cornflower and Pea Green.
We love this brand not only because of it embodies eco friendly principles, through its utilisation of recycled, recyclable and fair trade products, but because of its strong associations with British heritage.
