A party makes an elegant statement when set with antique porcelain. The original Coalport factory was founded in Coalport, Shropshire, England in 1795 by John Rose. The success of the company brought expansion and acquisitions en the early 19th century.
Rose and his firm received acclaim for the technical improvements in manufacturing and leadless glazing. The reputation of the factory's craftsmanship was increased at the Great Exhibition of London in 1851 when an elaborate table service commissioned by Queen Victoria as a gift to Tsar Nicholas I or Russia was displayed. Despite this the company sometimes struggled to stay afloat, going into receivership in 1875.
The company was reinstated under the name "Coalport China Company" and eventually greatly developed its export trade in the 1890's. Check out my other items.
