One of my hobby is collecting coffee mugs of different famous porcelain manufacturers..

I have been searching unique designs of coffeesets in different brocante, market and online auction platform when i came across different unique hand engraved english tableware.

My favorite collection is Meissen porcelain. The first Europe porcelain manufactory founded in 1710. It has the famous cross swords trademark.

Many people worldwide have been collecting Meissen porcelain even today which can be bought in Ebay auction platform, in Antique shops and other exclusive dining set shops.

My Favorite English Tableware

The Old Britain Castles porcelain serie of the Johnson Brothers Staffordshire England is my favorite hand engraved design. The famous color is the red and blue. The green and brown series are also unique and beautiful.

The Johnson Brothers is originaly a British manufacturer and exporter for almost over 100 years famous for producing fine china semi porcelain tableware.

The Old Britain Castles is an award winning design in 1950s and gained Royal Warrants from Queen Elizabeth II and the Queen Mother.

The serie Old Britain Castles, Old Country Scenes and other serie are still collected today.

Collecting Myott Tableware

Myott Son & Co. Alexander Pottery has many beautiful designs, valuable pattern books and records that were destructed by a great fire of the company in 1949. The fire cause the lost of many informations that has stunted the growth of the company in the world of Art Deco.

Myott Son & Co. Ltd., a family run business based, established in 1898 at the Alexander Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, in the North of England.

Ashley Myott, who's family originated in Switzerland has taken over The Alexander Pottery at the age of nineteen after the death of George Thomas, his boss, who managed the Pottery in 1888 producing earthware goods from three ovens.

Ashley Myott's brother Sydney Myott became his business partner. They built five-oven factory - the Brownfield's Works in Cobridge, north of Stoke-on-Trent .

In 1925, they extended their works to the adjacent Upper Hanley pottery (purchased from Grimwades) and formed a collective Alexander Potteries.

In 1949 the company moved to the larger Crane Street Pottery, Hanley (perhaps as a result of the fire) and in 1969 were bought out by Interpace an American corporation based in Parsippany, New Jersey, who were at the time the largest manufacturer of tableware in the USA. The Myott name was retained and in 1976 the company merged with Alfred Meakin Ltd, who were based in Tunstall, to form Myott-Meakin Ltd. In 1989 the name Myott-Meakin (Staffordshire) Ltd. was adopted as a result of an acquisition by Melton Modes. In June 1991 the company was ‘swallowed’ by the Churchill Group of potteries.
