Walking Ware was designed by Roger Michell Lustre Pottery in 1973 from an idea by Danka Napiorkowska. It was made in the studio and later manufactured by Carltonware until the factory closed down in 1986. Since then, Lustre Pottery have made 2 new teasets, the French Set designed in 2006 and the large, 12 piece tea set designed in 2007. They are both handmade and decorated in the studio. They carry Lustre Pottery's new Walking Ware trademark (below) and may be signed & numbered personally by Roger. These sets are made in small, limited editions and these will mark the last of Lustre Pottery Walking Ware designs.
