However, its not generally realised that up until around 1814, there were two separate porcelain factories at Coalport. One was operated by Robert Anstice, William Horton and Thomas Rose (John Roses younger brother) and the other operated by Edward Blakeway, John Rose and Richard Rose - later became famous and best known as John Rose and Co. The two factories located close together and were only separated by a narrow canal (now filled in). Thomas Roses factory, despite the short existence of around 13 years, was considered to be more superior in the quality of its factory-produced wares and the range of its design.Now you may have guessed that this beautiful and charming duo was made by what is now known as Coalport but one that belonged to Thomas Rose rather than John Rose. Its in Etruscan shape with a cup that looks like a bell-shape with lower flatten body. The prominent hairpin handle (as often known) is made up of two unmoulded strips which met in almost a point but with a slightly rounded and soften end. If youre a keen collector of Coalport ware, this is a fantastic reference piece which is worth adding to your collection.
