Cups and saucers


Between the 1920s and 1940s, the Moora Girl Guides commissioned a collection of Calyx Porcelain Works cups and saucers, complete with the Moora Girls Guides’ name and logo. The semi-porcelain crockery was produced in Subiaco and became quite the collector’s item. At its peak the company was the biggest producer of ceramics in the country, employing skilled craftsmen brought in from the United Kingdom. Between 1945 and 1959 Calyx Porcelain Works became Bristile China, which began producing the highly popular Wembley Ware range. Later still, a company by the name of Futuris Ltd bought the business and renamed it Australian Fine China. However, in 2006, the company’s Subiaco factory was demolished to make way for residential development, ending 85 years of production.
