Coalport China Museum

From reading my blog you have probably realized that I am a fan of Coalport China.  For those in love with the collecting and history of antique china, I’ve found a wonderful vacation destination when you’re overseas.  The Coalport China Museum is located in the village of Coalport in Shropshire, England.  The museum is located within a World Heritage Site as this is the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.  Pictured above is one of two historic “Bottle Kilns” at the museum.

One of the highlights of visiting the Coalport Museum would be seeing the slip casting process of making china.

The museum is also home to the Northumberland Vase, the largest piece of Coalport china ever produced!

I hope to share some of my similar travel finds in the near future relating to the things we discuss here on the blog.  Be sure to visit the museum website for more information.  Have a great weekend!

    Frances,
    Could you send me a photo of the stamp. Perhaps I could find some information for you. Also a photo of the pieces would be helpful.
