Background of Coalport Porcelain
In Shropshire, England, Coalport was a center of porcelain and pottery production beginning in 1795 when John Rose founded the Coalport Porcelain factory. The opening in 1792 of the Coalport Canal, which joins the River Severn at Coalport, had increased the site’s attractiveness, and from 1800 until a merger in 1814, two factories were operating, one on each side of the canal. Both factories made mostly tablewares with elaborate hand-painted overglaze decoration with floral subjects. In 1819 a merger with another factory brought molds and skilled staff from Nantgarw Porcelain and Swansea Porcelain to Coalport.
