This Runnymede Blue pattern was manufactured for 26 years by the Wedgwood China company, based in England. The name of the pattern "Runnymede Blue" is derived from the place where the Magna Carta was sealed in the year 1215 by King John of England. Runnymede is a meadow alongside the Thames river in Surrey England. Similar names in other patterns by Wedgwood are Cavendish and Edme, also named after locations in England.
Our favorite Wedgwood Runnymede Blue pieces are the dinner plate as well as the cereal bowl.
