Staffordshire pottery refers to a type of pottery that originated in the county of Staffordshire, England in the 17th century. It quickly became a major center for ceramics production, and by the 19th century, Staffordshire was home to hundreds of pottery manufacturers producing a wide range of wares. Staffordshire is a term used for pottery & ceramics originating from the six towns Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, Stoke and Tunstall, that now make up the city of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, England. The area became a center of cermaic production in the early 17th century due to the local availability of clay, salt, lead, coal & labor. Some major makers of Staffordshire ceramics are SpodeWedgwood & Royal Doulton
Staffordshire pottery is known for its high quality, durability, and affordable price, which made it popular among the middle class in Britain and abroad. Many famous pottery designs and techniques were developed in Staffordshire, including transfer printing, which allowed for the mass production of decorative designs onto ceramic surfaces.
Some of the most famous Staffordshire pottery designs include the Willow pattern, Blue and White transferware, and Staffordshire figures, which were small ceramic sculptures of people and animals. Today, Staffordshire pottery remains highly collectible and sought-after by collectors around the world.
