The Granada shape was an initially a promotion for J & H Interantional's Sheffield lines: Sheffield Granada (a specked green glaze) and Coventry Castilian (a gold glaze with black pattern). Both lines were sold as supermarket promotions. The shape was also used for the general trade and carried by various retailers.

According to the HLC mold notes, by early 1967, Granada consisted of plates, bowls, shakers, butter dish (modified Orbit shape butter), teapot, jug, utility bowl, ashtray, sauceboat and coffeepot.

The assortments for Sheffield Granada and Coventry Castilian were much more extensive than the other patterns. Sheffield Granada and Coventry Castilian had the covered soup tureen, ashtray, jumbo salad bowl, hostess tray, oval platter, coffee pot, teapot, mug, utility bowl, covered butter dish, and jug. The other patterns had very basic assortments by comparison.

Some of the shapes would undergo minor revisions, but there is basically one style: round shapes with an embossed scalloped decoration. On flatware, the scallop is towards the rim; on the hollowware, it is almost mid-body. The hollow forms are cylindrical with a stretched appearance. This stretch feature is repeated with the handles.

Patterns were placed on the different sizes of plates, but not on the hollowware. Gold and green glazes were used, along with a white speckled glaze called Whitestone.

Granada was produced from the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s.
