Brangwyn was passionate about ceramics – he collected examples of Persian, Chinese, Korean and Japanese ware and such items appear endlessly in his oils, watercolours and murals.  Sheets of designs -  discovered in the collection of Edgar Peacock, in 2004 - have greatly added to the knowledge of what Brangwyn produced and for who.  His commercial deisgns were mostly for Royal Doulton, bu talso for Foley pottery, A J Wilkinson and Ashtead Potters.Brangwyn stipulated that the Royal Doulton ware should be reasonably priced, have the appearance of hand thrown pottery, and that the painters should be allowed a certain freedom of expression, resulting in every item being slightly different. In addition to the Royal Doulton trademark each item bore the legend ‘Designed by Frank Brangwyn RA’and/or ‘Brangwyn Ware’. Brangwyn also produced designs for Ashtead Potters and Iris tableware for Clarice Cliff’s Bizarre range at A J Wilkinson.  Brangwyn also produced designs for ceramic tiles
