The Pennine range of oven-to-tableware was designed by Eric Owen in the early 1960s, and first went on sale in 1965. Advances in ceramic technology meant that ware could be created that could withstand such changes in temperature. An extremely popular innovation, many people recognise this range of cookware from their childhoods.
