The road to Staffordshire

It's that time of the month... the new issue of Homes & Antiques is out, and that means there is a new column to read. This month I focus on the first emergence of porcelain in Staffordshire, which had always been the centre of earthenware production but didn't start producing porcelain until the collapse of Chinese porcelain imports in the late 18th Century.

How this came about is an interesting and quite entertaining story, and you can read all about it in the magazine!
