Mason Cash has been the choice of home cooks and bakers for centuries.
Mason Cash has been the choice of home cooks and bakers for centuries. Our heritage can be traced back to a pottery operating at Church Gresley in the heart of the English ceramic industry in 1800. Church Gresley was located close to all the raw material and fuel sources required to make ceramics and had fantastic transport links to take finished goods all over the world.
The pottery became known for producing kitchen items made from ‘white and cane’ glazed earthenware sometimes known as ‘yellow ware’ due to the color of the local clay, or ‘bargeware’ as it was packed onto barges and sent to market. The pottery was run by a series of Master Potters of whom the most colorful was ‘Bossy’ Mason. During the 1800s the pottery was named after him, and when Tom Cash acquired it in 1901, he renamed it Mason Cash & Co.
Although Mason Cash had produced mixing bowls during the 1800s, in 1901 they designed and manufactured the very first iconic Mason Cash mixing bowl. The bowl’s design has endured the test of time and has become something of a design classic. Now we’re proud to see that Mason Cash mixing bowls, innovative bakeware and oven to tableware are part of any baker’s essential kit. The Mason Cash mixing bowl is a family heirloom, as families pass down the bowl from generation to generation. In fact, many will recognize it from hit TV show Downton Abbey where it was used in the kitchens ‘downstairs’!
