In Shropshire, England, Coalport was already a center of porcelain and pottery production in 1795 when John Rose founded the Coalport Porcelain factory. Opened in 1792, the Coalport Canal, which joins the River Severn at Coalport, increased the site’s attractiveness. From 1800 until a merger in 1814, two Coalport 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 both the East and the West, chrysanthemums are a symbol of the autumn. Chrysanthemums entered American horticulture in 1798 when Colonel John Stevens imported a cultivated variety known as ‘Dark Purple’ from England. The introduction was part of an effort to grow attractions within Elysian Fields in Hoboken, New Jersey, one of the earliest American parks to be developed in the English landscape garden style. For half a century, until the opening of Central Park in the early 1860s, the Hoboken park was legendary as one of the most popular outdoor recreation places in the New York metropolitan area.
