Background of Coalport Porcelain
The Coalport porcelain manufactory was founded by John Rose in 1795. Rose had trained at the Caughley Porcelain manufactory in Shropshire and had been making his own pottery nearby at Jackfield circa 1780. His rapid success enabled him to buy the Caughley manufactory in 1799, the Nantgarw Porcelain manufactory in 1819, and the Swansea Porcelain manufactory, with their repertory of molds. As the chief painter, he employed the talented William Billingsley, formerly at Nantgarw, and Billingsley’s chemist, Walker, who initiated at Coalport a maroon glaze and brought the Nantgarw technical recipes to Coalport.
