Pattern of the Month: Old Coalport


One of my favorite china patterns is the magnificent “Old Coalport” by the English manufacturer Coalport.  This pattern was reproduced between 1979 and 1983 under the name “Leighton Sprays.”  The floral pattern reminds me of the beautiful gardens surrounding Chestnut Cottage.

I’ve built up my Old Coalport collection over the years and Replacements, Ltd. has been a great resource.  Here are a few items they currently have available:

Dinner Plate

Fruit Bowl


Demitasse Cup & Saucer

You’ll find lots of entertaining inspiration using the Old Coalport pattern in my new book The Collected Tabletop.  The book will be available in stores and online September 1st.  If you would like to preorder a copy, simply email
