Background of Staffordshire Pottery

Staffordshire, England became a center of pottery and porcelain production in the early 17th century due to the local availability of the right sort of clay for making pottery and later porcelain and coal for heating the kilns. By the late 18th century, Staffordshire was Britain’s largest producer of ceramics. Large export markets took Staffordshire pottery worldwide, especially in the 19th century.
