History

The Coalport porcelain manufactory (or Coalport China), was founded by John Rose in 1795, at Coalport, served by the Coalport Canal. Rose had trained at the Caughley porcelain manufactory in Shropshire and had been making pottery on his own account since about 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 moulds. He employed the talented William Billingsley, formerly at Nantgarw, as chief painter, and Billingsley’s chemist, Walker, who brought the Nantgarw technical recipes to Coalport.
