Woods Ware on Wilton Way

A breakfast worthy of Blyton at Violet on Wilton Way yesterday morning: toasted St John’s sourdough (ok, perhaps a little too fancy to be truly authentically Blytonian), fresh butter, homemade loganberry and strawberry jams, washed down with coffee and hot milk.

Violet serves up its delicacies (which include excellent macaroons and dark, sticky ginger cake) on sturdy Woods Ware ‘Beryl’ plates. Produced by Staffordshire potters Wood & Sons from the 1940s onwards, ‘Beryl’ crockery, or its yellow ‘Jasmine’ and blue ‘Iris’ variants, are likely crockery staples of the Kirrin household (a post on Aunt Fanny’s taste in ceramics will no doubt follow in due course).
