Calyx Ware was produced from 1921 until the late 1930s by a pottery in Perth, Western Australia, originally named Calyx Porcelain and Paint Company, but undergoing several name changes. The range was mainly functional items, often decorated with Australian themes. Archibald Bertram Webb (1887-1944) was a British artist who migrated to Western Australia and decorated some ACalyx Ware items. After production of Calyx Ware ceased, the pottery produced the Wembley Ware range and then later 'Bristile'. The trade name Calyx Ware was also used by the British pottery, William Adams & Co. from 1896 to the 20th century.
