Background

The Coalport Porcelain Factory was founded in 1795 in England by John Rose. Eventually Rose incorporated the Caughley, Nantgarw, and Swansea factories into the Coalport factory; thus bringing a wide range of expert craftsmen to contribute to the production of his porcelain. In 1820, Rose received the Gold Medal of the Society of Arts for his feldspar porcelain and an improved, lead-free glaze with which the enamel colors fused in firing.
