The style of everyday tableware is always changing. Unlike fine china which is often purchased as a wedding present and lasts a lifetime, everyday tableware is replaced more frequently. New shapes, colours and patterns are introduced by designers and manufacturers to attract us to their products.

When surveyed across the 20th century, tableware provides a remarkably clear picture of the main developments in style and taste. The designs echo the changing styles in domestic interiors, and reflect the ways in which social and domestic conventions evolve.
